Today we live in a data-driven era with the inevitable emergence of interdisciplinary, geographically dispersed, data repositories that do not necessarily abide with existing interdisciplinary data representation standards, nor they belong to any data federation initiatives, rendering them unusable and difficult to access. Moreover, maintaining integrity, privacy, and security in such exchanges is typically extremely difficult or impossible. Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) and the Hellenic Mediterranean University (HMU) joined forces with several other European partners under “TRUSTEE”, one of the projects that was recently funded under the "Horizon Europe" Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2021-2027) of the European Commission. TRUSTEE aims to deliver a green, open-source, scalable, efficient, secure, trustworthy, and privacy-aware framework that will aggregate various interdisciplinary data repositories, such as Healthcare, Education, Energy, Space, Automotive, Cross-border, etc., and EU federation data spaces and transnational initiatives (e.g., Gaia-X and EOSC) with three main pillars of innovation: • Foster collaboration, between data consumers and suppliers who until now used to work in silos. • Build Trusted Data solutions, by reflecting the trustworthiness of data through the use of quality indicators, such as endorsements and deprecations. • Automate Testing and Monitoring, of not only the infrastructure but also the health and age (validity/update) of the data itself, while keeping every stakeholder informed about changes in a distributed manner.
