Digital Europe Programme explained: the data space for media

21.12.2021

As part of the Digital Europe Programme, the European Commission aims to set up common European Data Spaces. These data spaces will each have a specific sectoral focus. In a series of news pieces, we will showcase each of those sectoral data spaces. In this article, we dive into the data space for media.

In general, the data spaces will connect currently fragmented and dispersed data from various ecosystems, from the private and public sectors. They will offer an interoperable, trusted IT environment for data processing, and a set of rules of legislative, administrative, and contractual nature that determine the rights of access to and processing of the data.

The data space for media aims to provide a platform for sharing various types of content, for instance, user consumption and audience data, 3D animation models, or production meta-data. Computing resources will also be made available to creative industries and industrial sectors (e.g. retail or automotive) to open new markets for the media.

In terms of concrete deliverables and outcomes, the data space for media will deliver a cloud-based infrastructure to securely store data, tools for media data transaction that preserve data ownership, tools for data analytics, and services for financial transactions based on the data usage and services for Mixed, Augmented, and Virtual Reality content creation. In addition, tools that enable European citizens to find media content available online based on their preferences and interests should be available, to ultimately better understand the sentiments and perspectives of other Europeans.
