A Vicomtech team wins third prize in the Gaia X Hackathon


Hackathon number six organised by Gaia X was part of the Gaia-X Tech-X Conference event in Bilbao o May. A new and broader event whose purpose was to improve the knowledge of the technologies on which Gaia-X is built.

The aim of the event was to continue working on the implementation of a real end-to-end scenario that takes advantage of the Gaia-X open source software and its respective Trust Framework. The projects to be presented had to cover, as far as possible, the following steps:

  • Set the context, the real-life use and why a federation is needed/preferred
  • Show how the federation is built/used
  • Show how data exchange can be done by enforcing the access control described in the Gaia-X Compliant self-descriptions

The team of which Vicomtech is a member, called "Data Product Passport with European Manufacturing Gaia X Standards", has developed and presented an application based on Gaia-X that integrates IDSA connectors to aggregate and present the carbon footprint of a product throughout its life cycle (manufacturing, transport and use). 

Vicomtech's role in the development of the challenge was to actively participate in the definition and implementation of the Gaia-X architecture and components of the system. 

After a round of questions and the deliberation of the jury, the team won the third prize. 

Congratulations to all the winners!
