The objective of this meeting/ workshop is to define a concept of the so called DSBA Hub. As per today, each of the DSBA organisations (BDVA, IDSA, FIWARE and Gaia-X) has a network of hubs and many activities has been developed in the last year to stimulate collaboration among the different communities (e.g DSBA HubSpace (

During 2024 we want to conceptualise, test, (and when feasible scale), the DSBA Hub, not as an umbrella of the hubs of the different associations but as the ultimate instrument to accelerate data space adoption, innovation and value creation, based on the complementarity of the different communities. The first pilot is intended to take place at a national level, and the different DSBA hub community managers have selected Spain as the country for the first pilot.

This session is moderated by Ana Garcia Robles and Carlos Gonzalez
