IDSA Ambassadors

Advocating for data spaces

Our Ambassador program is a gathering point for data space enthusiasts and experts. We are making strides in developing the IDS standard, but there is still work to do. 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.

Ambassadors spread the good
news about data spaces

Embarking on the role of an IDSA Ambassador is no ordinary feat. The selection of IDSA Ambassadors involves a careful process, with nominations reviewed by our Head Office and approved by the Board of Directors.

Our ambassadors have showcased exceptional knowledge and extraordinary effort to drive the topic of data spaces and data sovereignty. Their motivation and enthusiasm for IDSA have truly set them apart.

Should you come across a potential candidate worthy of joining this exciting venture, do share your suggestion with the IDSA Head Office.
