After nearly two years of preparations and intensive project work with participation from numerous key stakeholders, the Austrian Gaia‑X Hub was established in April 2022. The project aims to accelerate European data ecosystems for economic, ecological, and societal value creation.
The Hub is centrally managed by a six-member Management Board appointed by the two involved ministries (BMK, BMDW): Georg HAHN, Tobias HÖLLWARTH, Helmut LEOPOLD, Roland SOMMER, Christian TAUBER, and Günther TSCHABUSCHNIG. Every board member was able to nominate a deputy as well. The Management Board steers the operative work groups and reports to the funding ministries.
