Data Spaces, how to mainstream it?
Data Spaces are vital for developing and enhancing data sharing between organisations, people, countries, or communities. However, Data Spaces remain complex projects (governance, technical implementation, etc.) to lead, and only a few are operational today.
How could we find a way to mainstream Data Spaces and make them accessible and easy to use?
