This positioning paper argues for the creation of a dataspace for the European media and creative industry sector. It describes use cases that could be facilitated within a trusted Media Data Space. It also provides a list of existing projects for content and data sharing, across Europe, that could be federated to create a first iteration of a Data space. The document also presents the existing challenges for data exchange and how a Media Data space could solve them, what are the key technical building blocks needed and some insight on governance and busness models for a media Data space.
The EBU coordinates a European working group on the creation of a Media/CCI data space, in sync with Gaia-x Data Space Business Committee, at the request of the Technical Committee of the EBU.
NOTE: In the context of this document, the acronym CCI refers to the 'Cultural and Creative Industry'.
