Prologue #2 Peter Verkoulen

Dear reader,

Time flies when you do fun things. I feel like I wrote the foreword to our previous newsletter the day before yesterday, and now you’re reading the next one. Developments around Gaia-X  are moving so fast, internationally and nationally.

For our own Dutch hub, I would like to refer you to the Gaia-X NL community event that we have planned for November 29 from 2 – 4 pm. Write it down in your diary! During the event you will be informed about the international developments by our CEO and COO of Gaia-X.

With regard to manufacturing, the Smart Connected Supplier Network use case is also on the agenda of the Summit. In our own event, we will take a closer look at this case and discuss the most current developments, for example the collaboration with the Online Trust Coalition/NOREA regarding assurance accreditation for SCSN. But of course there is much more to come.

“Is Gaia-X actually only for large companies and institutions?” I get that question regularly. “No definitely not!” SCSN is a perfect example here: on October 22, we organized a great event around Gaia-X in the manufacturing industry together with DVC-SI and Brainport Industries. With a lot of interest from SMEs: both ICT providers and manufacturing companies. Elsewhere in this newsletter you will find the review link.

I could go on and on… read on in the newsletter and contact us if you want to know more and especially… if you want to participate!
