Since 2016, Europe has been working on data compatibility and harmonisation. The Bai Data project seeks its universal structuring and sovereignty, as a “raw material”, and focusing on its ethical, certified, and interoperable origin. From this vision, it evolves in new approaches that allow us to work technically on its structuring and monetization. From this vision, it evolves in new approaches that allow us to work technically on its structuring and monetization. It is a movement born in Germany from which “hubs” are articulated in different regions. From the Basque Country, GAIA will coordinate the activity of Portugal and Spain, of which NOVExport through the Bilbao Hub, will be able to generate transversal activities and synergies.
Bai Data held its constituent assembly in March. From the above, it would be a matter of evolving in transferring the methodology to the sector, from trainings, trainings and pilot projects. Also from the “benchmark” regarding the activity deployed in other European regions, and from the study of the own needs to value the economy of the data. It is similarly proposed that there are Basque companies that want to make contributions with their own resources, so that experiences linked to specific vertical areas (e.g. mobility, energy, environment, etc.) begin to proliferate.
GAIA is an organization that promotes Bai Data and promotes that the sector becomes a channel to bring the opportunities of the data economy closer, wherever new services can be generated.
The European Commission has been working on a data law that will require its consideration from different perspectives (e.g. open, ethical, etc.). this would constitute an opportunity, a learning process. All organizations have databases, and there is a latent need to evolve and transform them to generate greater market value. This should be considered an opportunity to create a “new layer of service”.
