Discover the roadmap to the future EMDS!

For the last 12 months, we have been working on unlocking the potential of European mobility data. And our final deliverable is finally here for you to dive into! Thanks to your active involvement and the hard work of all project partners, we were able to successfully lay out possible roadmaps for the future EMDS.

Our report provides a detailed examination of the EMDS initiative and its requirements to fit the diverse needs of stakeholders involved. It covers foundational principles, technical developments, and business and governance models for a successful data space. Read our full analysis report to get all the details on the future EMDS here. All the info regarding the building blocks for the future EMDS can be found here too.

Pillars making up a data space

We are on the home stretch to finalise drafting what the future EMDS will look like. Secure, cross-border mobility sharing will revolutionise the way mobility connects Europe. Head to our website to find out more about necessary functionalities of a data space before our final results are published.

Pillars of a data space - Data Sovereignty and Trust

Retaining authority and control over European data is essential. Citizens and organisations alike must be able to determine who can access their data and for what purposes. Data space participants must have confidence in the truthfulness and quality of received information, ensuring reliability and adherence to ethical standards. PrepDSpace4Mobility is analysing common standards for managing the identity of participants and capabilities for the verification of their truthfulness. This includes the definition of, agreement upon, and enforcement of data access and usage control conditions.

Racing towards the future EMDS

The days may be getting shorter, but the outlook for tomorrow’s mobility is brighter than ever. Over the summer break, we've been working on drafting what the future EMDS should look like. Have a look at our latest newsletter to find out what we have been up to.

23 August 2023

Pillars of a Data Space - Interoperability

Mobility data is generated in various formats. They differ in the way that data is shareable and reusable, its relationship between data entities, the tech standards applied throughout the process – and much more. The EMDS prevents fragmentation of the data economy by introducing a ‘common lingua’ every data space participant uses. Data interoperability establishes this common language and framework for data exchange, interpretation, and integration. We are working on proposing suitable standards that enable semantic interoperability between participants in a data space.

16 August 2023

Pillars of a Data Space - Data Value Creation

Transforming mobility data into useful information enables new possibilities for generating economic, social, or environmental value. However, this requires capabilities to describe, publish, and discover offerings of data and services by means of catalogues, such as currently similarly provided by National Access Points (NAPs). We are currently analysing common means of describing data services and data service offerings, as well as their associated terms and conditions.


09 August 2023

Pillars of a Data Space - Legal

European data must be protected. The EMDS is to ensure compliance with horizontal legislation, such as privacy, data protection, competition and IP laws and sector specific regulations. It is a delicate mixture of national and EU legal entitlements to data, the ambitious European legislative agenda, and the interplay between the various regulatory instruments. PrepDSpace4Mobility is analysing the legal framework for the EMDS.

Pillars of a Data Space - Business Models

A data space can be established for a multitude of purposes. Organisations might pursue sharing costs, boosting joint innovation, or might share and exchange data for the greater common good. Data space providers should be able to create and operate the data space environment in a financially sustainable manner. Simultaneously, participants should be able to create, deliver, and capture value through viable use cases. We are looking into multi-faceted business models, that not only encompass business and technical aspects, but also legal and organisational elements.

Pillars of a Data Space - Governance

Data-based decision-making will revolutionise the way mobility connects Europe. Clear frameworks for sharing and exchanging data have to be provided that ensure compliance with laws and putting you in control over your information. Over the summer, we are working on providing clear recommendations for each of the six building blocks needed for a successful data space. The EMDS needs a clear governance framework – a set of principles, standards, policies, and practices that define how a data space is governed and how decisions are made.

How we link data sharing to legislative acts

Data sharing is a delicate matter - but there is a set of existing and future regulatory frameworks that enable harmonised rules for fair and trusted data sharing. The common European mobility data space is to be built up on that legislation. We examine legislative acts that facilitate or limit data sharing like the Data Act, GDPR, and the Data Government Act and take them into consideration when laying the foundation of the future EMDS. Also, we can count on our project partner KU Leuven to bring in strong legal expertise and identify suitable legal and governance frameworks for trusted data exchange. As such, we included a dedicated section on legal aspects in the survey we sent out to around 400 data initiatives across Europe.

#PartnerDay - EMTA

Public transport authorities in urban areas are a key player for achieving sustainable mobility. EMTA - European Metropolitan Transport Authorities brings together 32 authorities from 19 European countries to improve mobility conditions of some 70 million European urban citizens.

Second press release

Halfway through implementation, we have successfully achieved our first objective of creating an inventory of European data ecosystems. An inventory of almost 400 data sharing initiatives was
created by mapping existing data ecosystems in the mobility and logistics sector. 229 of
those are available to be explored on an interactive map on our website here. We have reached out with an in-depth survey and are analysing the data sharing initiatives to find common ground and draw conclusions on suitable frameworks for an easy, cross-border access to key data for passengers and freight within the European Union.
