A European IT initiative for data sovereignty
GAIA-X is a major European digital project aimed at strengthening Europe’s position in international competition. The goal is to establish a European data infrastructure for the secure digitalization and networking of industry, finance, and healthcare, and as a basis for the use of new applications with artificial intelligence (AI). Professor Friedhelm Loh, owner and chairman of the Friedhelm Loh Group, was one of the co-founders of this major European project, which was launched last autumn by Peter Altmaier, Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy. As a subsidiary of the Friedhelm Loh Group, German Edge Cloud is one of the founding members of the GAIA-X Foundation.
