Datarella, together with leading industry partners and research facilities have been awarded a contract for the feasibility study titled “Collaborative Smart Services for Industrial Value Chains in Gaia-X (COSMIC-X)”, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Building on the results of joint project KOSMoS, the goal of the two year project is to use the Gaia-X industry data space (IDS) for provisioning advanced smart services (ASS) in the context of spare part supply chain automation and optimization.

The target group of COSMIC-X are machine tool manufacturers, component suppliers and machine operators, with a special focus given to assisting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in taking part in and profiting off of the Gaia-X ecosystem. The specific use cases that will be explored in close collaboration with industry partners SW, HAWE und KROHNE are digital twins, trusted supply chains and platform-based maintenance.

With its expertise in blockchain technology and self-sovereign identity (SSI), Dataralla is tasked with defining the technical requirements of the use cases and, based on these, develop a blockchain-based system architecture in conformance with the Gaia-X framework. This will ensure an open, transparent and secure infrastructure for data sharing and collaboration.

We are looking forward to working on this project with all of our partners and will keep you updated on the results.
