Concepts and technologies for sovereign industrial data exchange Fraunhofer CCIT
Within the framework of the Fraunhofer CCIT, the technology hub Data Spaces focuses on the data infrastructure level and thus represents the link between physical communication (cf. technology hub IOT-COMMS) and the application level (cf. technology hub Machine Learning). Here, the work focuses on data sovereignty and data economics, which provide the basis for the data-driven value creation layer in the edge-cloud continuum (ECC). By edge-cloud continuum, we mean complete data value chains that extend from sensors and edge devices in the immediate environment of end users to central data centers and cloud platforms.
Based on the many successful preliminary efforts of numerous Fraunhofer institutes in the context of the "International Data Spaces" initiative, which make Fraunhofer a leading international research institution for the complex of topics "Data Sovereignty and Data Economy", the technology hub Data Spaces focuses on the development of a comprehensive and industrially applicable implementation of the International Data Spaces reference architecture model.
