Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs) are currently emerging for accessing and processing data in cases in which the various data sources cannot always simply be shared between stakeholders. This may be the case when the amount of data to be transferred is too large or due to sensitivity, confidentiality, ethical, privacy or other legal issues. At the same time, the development of data spaces is at the core of the European Data Strategy. Both data spaces and PETs pursue a common goal on controlled data sharing and data sovereignty, with protection of sensitive data as a core value. However, although data space and PET concepts cannot be seen as independent developments, no clear way forward has yet been identified how to combine them.

This session will explore the challenges when combining these two concepts and will identify the components for a roadmap, enabling the EU to build data spaces that prevent information leakage using state of the art technologies.
