On March 14 and 15, the European Association for Data and Cloud (AISBL) of the European Gaia-X Initiative, in collaboration with Gaia-X Hub Austria, hosted the first European Market-X Community Event at the Aula der Wissenschaften in Vienna. Experts from a wide range of industries from all over Europe as well as political stakeholders came together to discuss the opportunities and challenges of building a secure, transparent and open European data ecosystem.
Market-X took place in the context of the recently launched implementation phase of Gaia-X, which aims to support digitalization across industries in Europe. The aim was to inform participants about the latest trends and developments in cloud computing, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT), and to highlight solutions and ways to create new business models and opportunities.
