For our global way forward, we found strong partners in France: During the Gaia-X Summit, the signing ceremony for the first Catena-X hub took place.
The two associations...
- Plateforme Filière Automobile PFA, which represents 4000 companies in the automotive sector across the country, and
- GALIA, a long-time player in the field of data exchange standardization.
...will represent Catena-X locally and connect companies, key players in the data economy and software development as well as use cases from the French automotive industry.
The automotive value chains are international. Integrating various international perspectives to the Catena-X Automotive Network will be gradually and strategically build up. To prepare this the Catena-X Automotive Network e.V. is working on a strategic framework for global growth with committed partners that support and enable the regional roll-out of Catena-X as well as the decentralized implementation. The establishment of the first Catena-X-Hub in France is an important milestone in this endeavor and a precursor to a future international Catena-X hub network."
The goal of the French hub is to give visibility to the Catena-X data ecosystem in France, expand the network, develop new use cases for the local industrial community, and create synergies within the French ecosystem.
