PDS Session 2

Together with the Interoperable Europe unit & the JRC, we welcomed all invitees on Wednesday the first of March 2023 for the second workshop on Personal Data Spaces.


The objective of this second workshop was to identify how existing and potential personal data space technologies can ensure semantic and technical interoperability by working hands-on on a use case. The aim of the use case was to identify the key building blocks which will show how personal data space technologies can be used to create an architecture that is conformant to MyData principles. These building blocks will include Identity, Data Modelling, Service Management, Access Control, Governance and Logging.
