Who can join Gaia-X?

"With Gaia-X, I support a project that establishes core European values in data sharing on cloud platforms. This standard for cloud and data sovereignty should be applied worldwide. In perspective, it will be used by every cloud platform in ten years."
Prof. Dr. Boris Otto, Board of Directors Gaia-X Association, Fraunhofer ISST und TU Dortmund

We are looking for both users and providers to participate in the project. The success of Gaia-X depends largely on user-driven demand and the definition of users’ requirements. We are also looking for companies and organisations from different industries representing the user perspective. The contributions of technological companies, including providers, is key to the development of the technical concept.
