Help co-create the Data Spaces Interoperability Compass (DSIC)

In 2024, the CoE-DSC is starting a co-creation of Data Spaces Interoperability Compass (DSIC), that is a living document and a set of tools to aid data spaces & data sharing initiatives get closer to interoperability, navigate current landscape of available building blocks, and explore a roadmap of data space developments.

As part of the co-creation process there are two main workstreams and other related activities that  our community is invited to participate in throughout the year.

To read more details on specific deliverables and co-creation process, download the information package below.

Interested to join or have questions? Reach out to CoE-DSC via,

Our workstreams and additional activities

8 May the Kick-off session was hosted (for more information download the Kick-off deck). Community members who have signed up are now involved in the research activities.

The CoE-DSC team is now conducting interviews with participants. On July 5, an interactive session was planned to discuss interoperability challenges and value of federating data spaces, to discover what does it mean for the development of your data sharing initiative. For the recordings and slidedeck of this session, please click here.

After the summer we will stay in touch on future sessions/workshops for specific elements like digital identity, and discoverability, as well as participation in the review period.

CoE-DSC is in the process of documenting exisiting Dutch data sharing initiatives as well as intermediaries (service providers) in the field of data sharing and data spaces. As the result, CoE-DSC will present a scan to our community, plotting together existing activities in the Netherlands.

At the moment we are working on a ‘living’ list, and would appreciate your input! To have your initiative/organisation included in the CoE-DSC scan, please use this survey by May 24, if you represent*:

  • a data sharing initiative/ a data space
  • an intermediary serving data spaces

*Privacy notice, the results will be published in an anonymised manner, that is, the CoE-DSC scan will plot names of initiatives/organisations, and will not refer to any individual persons.
