The European Data Trustee (EuroDaT) is the first data trustee following the EU’s Data Governance Act in the Gaia-X universe. EuroDaT facilitates data exchange for joint analyses while still respecting the data sovereignty of the involved parties. Initiated through a publicly funded research project, now operational as a state-owned entity, we will describe two use-cases, namely a platform for detecting money-laundering activities and an open and fair ESG data-platform.
