IDSA ambassadors 

Our Ambassador program is a gathering point for data space enthusiasts and experts. Each of our ambassadors will help us promote the understanding of data spaces, demonstrate their potential, and inspire new participants in a collaborative way, reshaping the data economy for the better.


IDSA’s secure, cross-sector solution for global data sharing is built not only on a strong technical foundation, but also on a rock-solid foundation of leadership, with an executive board of top business and science leaders drawn from multiple industries and perspectives.

Head office

International data spaces may be virtual, but IDSA’s head office is a real place where essential operations take place and where you can find your contact partners. We’re located at the TechnologieZentrum Dortmund.

With the founding of the International Data Spaces Association, the business and research communities are actively participating in the design of a trusted architecture for the data economy. The goal of the IDSA is to ensure data sovereignty through an open architecture for peer-to-peer networks that enables usage control of data from all sectors.
