As indicated in Figure 2, TRUSTS will incorporate several future technologies. For example, the TRUSTS European Data Market will use the work carried out by the International Data Spaces Association on the usage of semantic web technologies for describing data schemas and using these to configure Connectors and interpret the data which is shared through these Connectors. This includes the usage of linked data and semantic matching, extending the current industrial state-of-the-art based on syntactic interoperability, e.g., using XML-based web services. TRUSTS will ensure that the generic architecture is fit to enable the use of such new technologies, which are expected to become mainstream in the upcoming years.
The architecture and reference implementations will be made available to external actors. Other initiatives will also benefit from the outcomes of the project, including the International Data Spaces use cases in Germany and the Data Market Austria. Parts of the architecture will be selected for formal standardisation. The project will support initiatives in this field, both within DIN and ETSI. This will make it easier for others to adopt and implement the architecture. Standardisation will relate to (building on the work of the International Data Spaces Association):
