DIH Tourism 4.0 proudly announces to be part of the EU-funded DATES Tourism Data Space project. The aim of this project is to explore approaches and options for deploying a secure and trusted tourism data space, ensuring transparent control of data access, use and re-use. The project focuses on developing governance and business models while providing a shared roadmap that will ensure the coordination of the tourism ecosystem stakeholders and the connection between data ecosystems at EU level and interconnected data spaces in other sectors.
The project promotes the vision of a prosperous tourism data space and recommends clear strategies on how to inspire and motivate all key tourism stakeholders to collaboratively build a powerful interconnected tourism data space. Besides providing leadership and practical advice about how every stakeholder in the tourism value chain can contribute and utilise data streams, the added benefits of a European Tourism Data Space will be highlighted from each stakeholder’s perspective. In more general terms, DATES supports the digital transformation of the sector, fostering competitiveness, resilience, and sustainability as key success factors to maintain Europe’s leading role.
The DATES work will be structured around the following activities:
- Identify high-priority data sets and define rules for their usage.
- Develop a blueprint of the technological and non-technological elements that will define a tourism data space.
- Create an integrated and comprehensive tourism data ecosystem managed by a common governance.
- Incorporate resilience and sustainability as transversal pillars of the tourism data space.
