SRIW will actively contribute at the GAIA-X Vision: Kick-off, January 27th, 2021


As a Day-1 member of GAIA-X, we are proud to announce, that SRIW‘s Deputy Managing Director Frank Ingenrieth will be part of a seven panel series, all about the Vision of GAIA-X.

More precisely, Frank Ingenrieth will be part of the Certification and Accreditation Panel. As member of the according GAIA-X Community working group, he is happy to elaborate on the questions „How is this ecosystem regulated and how do actors gain trust from each other?“. The Certification and Accreditation Panel looks closely at procedures and mechanisms that allow actors to explicitly qualify for GAIA-X requirements. Besides Andreas Weiss (Head of Digital Business Models, eco e.V.), as the moderator of the panel, Thomas Niessen (Managing Director, Trusted Cloud) and Thomas Wawra (Managing Director & Founder, DCE Academy) will actively contribute at the panel.

GAIA-X is a project initiated by Europe, for Europe, with the aim of developing common requirements for a European Data Infrastructure. Funded by the BMWI, the project is based on the principles of Openness & Transparency, Interoperability, Federated systems, Authenticity and Trust, reflecting the core values of the European Community.

„Cloud Expo Europe Frankfurt“ will be hosting their first GAIA-X virtual summit on the 27th January 2021. For all who are fascinated and interested in Data Protection, Compliance, Ecosystems, Digital Business Models, Data Sovereignty and Digital Transformation it’s a must to join the virtual Webinar!
