The future of the data economy is here

What we do and why it matters

As a non-profit organization, the International Data Spaces Association (IDSA) is dedicated to creating standards for data spaces. These standards are designed to ensure secure data sharing between participants within a specified governance framework, fostering trust and maintaining data sovereignty.

We are on a mission to create the future of the global, digital economy with International Data Spaces (IDS), a secure, sovereign system of data sharing in which all participants can realize the full value of their data. IDS enables new ”smart services” and innovative business processes to work across companies and industries while ensuring that the self-determined control of data use (data sovereignty) remains in the hands of data providers.
