We are honoured to be a Day 1 Member of the European Union’s GAIA-X data infrastructure initiative.

Klarrio brings deep expertise in cloud-native data streaming, data engineering and data science to the project. We will collaborate with other European businesses and organisations to share industry knowledge, best practices and use cases as the initiative prepares to launch in 2021.

GAIA-X aims to build a secure, unified and federated data infrastructure for European countries and businesses. It will be based in the EU and will be protected by EU data laws, while promoting innovation and digital sovereignty.

“GAIA-X is an important initiative for all European businesses because it will facilitate a stronger focus on data governance, digital sovereignty, privacy enforcement and data ownership towards its citizens,” said Kurt Jonckheer, co-founder and CEO of Klarrio. “We are honoured to be a Day 1 Member of the organisation and we look forward to helping bring the vision and reality of a data-driven society to front-of-mind for EU businesses and consumers.”

Klarrio is working on the initiative alongside Agoria, an industry consortium that is leading the Belgian hub of GAIA-X called “GAIA-X for Belgium.”
