The GREAT Project – Green Deal Data Space

The GREAT project, funded by the EU’s Digital Europe Programme, aims to establish the Green Deal Data Space Foundation and its Community of Practice which builds on both the European Green Deal and the EU’s Strategy for Data.

The framework that GREAT will implement includes 5 pillars:

Community of Practice


Priority Dataset


Technical Blueprint


Governance & Business Models



Community of Practice: open pan-European Community of Practice of data providers, users & intermediaries from industry, public administration, & research communities participating in all phases from co-design to implementation.

Priority dataset: The Minimum Viable Green Deal Data Space, defining an expandable core set of high-value datasets for the first implementation phase of the data ecosystem federation.

Blueprint: reference of the technical architecture setting the data & service technical interoperability framework & defining the common services enabling federated discovery, access, processing & reuse of data.

Governance & Business Models: An open & inclusive multi-stakeholder governance scheme defining federation business processes, roles, policies & the trust framework.

Roadmap: The roadmap defining the future implementation & capacity building steps


The EU’s biodiversity strategy for 2030 is a comprehensive, ambitious and long-term plan to protect nature and reverse the degradation of ecosystems. The strategy aims to put Europe’s biodiversity on a path to recovery by 2030, and contains specific actions and commitments.

The action plan aims to strengthen the EU green, digital and economic leadership, whilst creating a healthier, socially fairer Europe and planet. It provides a compass to mainstream pollution prevention in all relevant EU policies, to step up implementation of the relevant EU legislation and to identify possible gaps.

The strategy sets out how the European Union can adapt to the unavoidable impacts of climate change and become climate resilient by 2050. The Strategy has four principle objectives: to make adaptation smarter, swifter and more systemic, and to step up international action on adaptation to climate change.
