The people and structure behind Gaia-X

Gaia-X is a joint project: It brings people from different companies, research institutions, associations, administrations and politics together to work towards a common goal. Together, they build on the widest spectrum of expertise to co-create the future of the digital infrastructure for Europe across dedicated data spaces serving the most critical industries.

Three bodies working together

An international alliance of more than 1800 participants from over 500 institutions is working together to make Gaia-X possible. Established large companies rub shoulders with young start-ups. Numerous cloud solution providers collaborate with representatives from a wide range of industries, for example from the manufacturing sector, finance and transport and mobility. 

Moreover, participation also aligns state institutions, associations and research institutes, who have supported the large-scale project, alongside the private sector. This wide-ranging alliance guarantees that the focus can go beyond very specific challenges, or that solutions are developed in isolation.

Gaia-X is open to new interested stakeholder to help it to develop further. Everyone can get involved in a way that best suits their resources - for example, through the contribution of technical expertise, suggestion of new use cases or through active and continuous participation in one of the various open working groups.
