How can dataspaces contribute to Tourism development in Europe through citizen centred offerings?
The European Tourism sector is highly beneficial, yet highly fragmented. In this instance, Gaia-X is aiming at making European tourism data available to improve the capacity to attract tourists by receiving improved and tailored experience offers through centring the sector on the customer and their needs.
Better data availability would aid in the development and establishment of new businesses. Personal data must be kept private so that citizens have complete control. The Gaia-X framework allows for the creation of sovereign and federated tourism data spaces that can be deployed with confidence and at scale. These data spaces federate existing data initiatives and invite new initiatives to join the federation in order to better manage tourism for both tourists and local inhabitants by predicting tourists‘ and marketeers‘ demands in real time and responding almost immediately.
