TRUSTS – Trusted Secure Data Sharing Space – is an innovation action funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Number 871481. The project’s goal is to create a secure and trustworthy European data market for personal and industrial use by interconnecting different user groups and providing generic functionalities for innovative applications and services.
Our consortium consists of seventeen partners based in nine countries across Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Israel, the Netherlands, Romania, and Spain. TRUSTS brings together technology providers, data providers, research institutions, and multipliers. The project runs from January 2020 to December 2022.
The aim of this whitepaper is to give the project stakeholders – i.e. data providers, data consumers, similar EU project consortiums, technology providers; in general the European Data Ecosystem – an overview of the technological basis of the future data market or data market federator. TRUSTS maintains an open communication policy and would like to share its own learnings from the project activities with all interested parties.
To provide a general overview of the technological developments in the project, this whitepaper explains which reference architectures TRUSTS builds on, how these have been further developed, and which innovations are necessary for the future, and thus for the achievement of the project proposal.
