Smart governance frameworks can help lay the basics for cooperation based on mutual trust and transparency. A common set of rules and clear agreements for the use of infrastructure and data services is essential to get digital ecosystems up and running. And what does it take to be Gaia-X compliant? Our panelists will discuss how the implementation of existing rules in the Gaia-X context works and what a future-proof legal frame-work for digital cooperation can look like.
