Home > Projects > Further Gaia-X Projects

In addition to the eleven initiatives of the Gaia-X funding competition, there are further projects in Germany that are engaged with Gaia-X or that are implementing innovations and services based on the Gaia-X framework. Hereafter, we present a list of funding initiatives and projects that are associated with the Gaia‑X Hub Germany or are represented in its various domains.

Lighthouse Projects and Data Space Initiatives

This list will be gradually expanded. Your project is not listed? Please feel free to contact us.

Gaia-X Projects in Germany

Agri-Gaia Logo


This project implements an open AI ecosystem designed for the Agrifood sector based on Gaia-X. Within this ecosystem, interfaces and systems are established to foster a cross-manufacturer infrastructure and network, facilitating the seamless and expedited integration of AI into practical applications within the Agri-Gaia framework.

Catena-X Logo


Catena-X is the first collaborative, open data ecosystem for the automotive industry of the future, linking global players into end-to-end value chains – as simple, secure, and independent as never before . The common goal is a standardized global data exchange based on European values: Whoever provides data retains full control and decides individually who is involved in the data exchange ‒ how, when, where and under what conditions. Catena-X ensures secure and reliable implementation.

energy data-X Logo

energy data-X

The project aims to promote the energy transition by creating a common data space for innovative, data-driven business models and standardized, efficient data exchange within the energy industry and its related sectors. The data space guarantees reliably that data security and individual decisions on data exchange are in accordance with the European Gaia-X standards.

EuProGigant Logo


The Austro-German research project for smart and sovereign data sharing in the European manufacturing industry started on March 1, 2021. The aim of the project is to establish a cross-site, digitally interconnected production ecosystem, thereby enhancing the sovereignty, resilience, and sustainability of Europe’s production and manufacturing sector. Central to this initiative is the consortium’s commitment to data-driven value creation, leveraging the principles of the European data infrastructure Gaia-X.
Fair Data Spaces Logo

FAIR Data Spaces

The project aims to establish a common, cloud-based data space for industry and science in compliance with the FAIR principles, i.e. to make data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. To this end, the consortium is creating a roadmap for cooperation between Gaia-X and the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI).

safeFBDC Logo

Financial Big Data Cluster (FBDC)

The Financial Big Data Cluster aims to pave the way for data-driven business models in the financial sector across Europe by providing traditional financial institutions, start-ups, public players and research institutions with access to relevant financial market data. It thus lays the foundation for a data infrastructure that ensures the secure cross-organizational exchange and use of financial data by academia, regulators and industry while preserving individual data sovereignty.
Gaia-X 4 Future Mobility Logo

Gaia-X 4 Future Mobility

The common goal of the Gaia-X 4 Future Mobility project family is the Gaia-X based implementation of mobility applications. These include applications and services for production and operation, but also for the higher-level mobility system, such as parking space management or road condition monitoring. Together, the projects are building an open and decentralized data and service ecosystem in which scalable applications and necessary services and data are securely provided.
Mobility Data Space Logo

Mobility Data Space

On this data marketplace, partners in the mobility sector can exchange data in a self-determined manner in order to enable and further develop innovative, sustainable and user-friendly mobility concepts. The Mobility Data Space brings together companies, organizations and institutions: those who want to monetize their data treasures and those who need data for innovative mobility solutions.
NaLamKI Logo


NaLamKI means Sustainable Agriculture with Artificial Intelligence. The project involves the development of specialized AI methods tailored to address challenges in agricultural technology and science. Furthermore, the project sets the stage for making the collected data and AI models accessible by cloud applications with open interfaces, catering to developers and end-users of smart farming solutions.
Omega-X Logo


The projects implemens a federated data space for the energy sector that enables various stakeholders to data and services securely and confidently. In particular, this addresses the problem of low data availability for innovations in the sector. Omega-X is working with various stakeholders to identify improvements or necessary innovations for energy-based services as well as possible use cases and their requirements.


The PAIRS research project (Privacy-Aware, Intelligent and Resilient CrisiS) develops a platform for crisis management that iteratively learns to identify crises in their formative stages and provides data-driven recommendations for action. The AI hybrid technology of PAIRS is intended to anticipate both the initial crisis event and the reactions of various actors in a cross-domain data space in order to generate targeted recommendations for action on this basis.
Service-Meister Logo


In the industrial sector, the complexity of machinery, devices, and products often exceeds the knowledge of the individual employee. The shortage of skilled workers further exacerbates this issue of increasingly intricate technical services. Service-Meister is developing a platform that empowers less specialized personnel to undertake demanding tasks in the maintenance and repair of complex industrial facilities. The provided AI-based services are intended to predict potential malfunctions and suggest courses of action.
SmartLivingNEXT Logo


The digitalization and networking of living areas (smart living) can give rise to many new applications and digital services that make living more energy-efficient, safer and more comfortable. However, the necessary data must be accessible not only in new buildings, but also in existing buildings. SmartLivingNEXT is developing a Gaia-X-compatible solution in which the data remains in its original system and under the strict control of the data owner. It uses the foundations provided in the previous ForeSight research project and further develops them.
smartMA-X Logo


The project plays a key role in implementing the vision of shared production and establishing the Production Level 4 ecosystem. The aim of the project is to create a secure, federated data platform for production – the Gaia‑X Data Space Industry 4.0.
Spaicer Logo


AI technologies and Industry 4.0 standards can help to reduce production disruptions and interruptions to supply chains to a minimum or avoid them altogether. Industry-specific smart resilience services (SRS) are being developed for this so-called resilience management, which companies can adapt to their individual needs. To this end, SPAICER is building an open ecosystem with various platforms to ensure the transfer of technology to SMEs and the data protection-compliant and performance-oriented use of SRS.
Structura-X Logo


The common goal of the Structura-X initiative is to transform its existing infrastructure services into an ecosystem for European data sovereignty. A comprehensive European cloud infrastructure is being created. Services and data rooms can thus be tested and deployed in a Gaia-X-tested infrastructure. At the same time, Structura-X enables the necessary scale for new cross-sector and cross-border collaboration in the cloud. This overcomes the previous fragmentation of the European cloud market.
