Recognizing ongoing work on innovative architectures for federated digital infrastructures, this session will present key architectural directions in GAIA-X, Data Spaces Business Alliance, W3C, CERN  and EOSC. 


To find potential areas of alignment or common architectural components, what is successful, what does not work.

To find gaps or challenges that still need to be addressed by architectures to solve complex challenges supporting big data for AI/ML, complex research environments, IoT etc… 

Will standardisation help in the road to convergence ?  

Do particular deployment models favour federations in any particular way  ? Blockchain, centralised, decentralised, wallets, pods etc …
