Welcome to the collaborative platform to build the Data Space Education and Skills (DASES) within the GAIA-X initiative.
This platform presents the general progress of this work and the different use cases. It is implemented by the public interest association Prometheus-X and based on the open source project decidim.org.
Let's build the Data Space Education and Skills (DASES) together
Thanks to GAIA X’s French hub, DASES has created a working group, bringing together various actors in the educational sphere in order to bring a sovereign vision of digital education to the European level. This vision is embedded in a human-centric, ethical and trustworthy framework, which is developed and supported by an adequate governance system for education and skills data.
Our goal is to create the Prometheus-X portal together to facilitate the emergence of sovereign ecosystems of education and skills data in Europe. We provide the network, the governance and the infrastructure necessary for the interoperability of education data.Participate in its construction

Use cases with decisive impact
In order to have a decisive impact, we have identified numerous use cases through human-centric working groups. These use cases have been organized into 3 main sections. The selected use cases are validated by the GAIA-X "Education and Skills" Data Space (DASES) working groups.
Use cases on SKILLS
- Pooling data to offer better services to people (employment, training, education, etc.)
- Creating ethical networks of personal data
- Enabling the individual to receive personalized lifelong learning
- Providing interoperability of skills data
Among its first users and data providers, Prometheus-X gathers a set of committed actors in order to implement these use cases, preconfigure the skills data network and iterate on the infrastructure services developed. These actors will then augment their services with these new features to increase the value provided to each learner.
Use case on DATASETS
- Allows actors to cross data sets that are currently fragmented
- Limits cold start problems
- Exploit unused data in a trusted environment
- Larger datasets to open up training possibilities for Machine Learning models
- Interoperability of educational data
This use case consists in enabling actors to pool aggregated data in order to train artificial intelligence algorithms.
This is a necessity for public and private sectors, as well as for research.
Use case - Impact study
- Allows stakeholders to easily access data that measures the impact of their solutions
- Ensures interoperability of datasets in order to compare over longer periods of time or with more data
- Interoperability of educational data
This use case brings together data and learning traces of students, declarative questionnaires and resource monitoring across all solutions and services used, in an extra-curricular continuum. In addition, this use case enables an analysis of each solution’s impact and its progress margins.
Any service allowing data circulation and voted by the governance board can become a Prometheus-X infrastructure service.
Technical infrastructure for education and skills data interoperability
Prometheus-X is an association under the French law of 1901.
Our mission is to promote personalized learning, lifelong training and orientation, professional integration and research in these fields.
Our ambition is to create and govern infrastructure services for the circulation of education and skills data. This infrastructure allows actors in these sectors to pool and share data to improve and customize their services.Join the project
An open and representative governance of the industry
To guarantee the adoption of this infrastructure, an open and legitimate governance is essential. This is why Prometheus-X was created as an association, uniting different types of members who will govern this infrastructure together and decide on its development.
A distribution of members according to their roles
Membership is exclusively reserved to legal entities
Public, institutional or associative actors that are legitimate to represent the interests of the education/skills sector
Ensures the legitimacy of the governance of the infrastructure, the confidence in its adoption and in its objective of general interest.
Organizations that develop and maintain infrastructure services
Produce and make available the code for infrastructure services. They can also market them as managed services from the Prometheus-X platform for a fee.
Organizations that make data available via infrastructure services
Decide on the conditions of use and access to their data.
Organizations that use the data made available via infrastructure services to implement use cases
Pilot the different use cases of the structure.
Why join us?
Co-construction of rules and standards
Take part in assemblies and working groups to provide ideas and opinions to create the governance of the Data Space Education & Skills.
Play an active role in creating a common good
Become an active member in the creation of a common good for the educational sector. A foundation on which all players in this field can build. To build the education of today and tomorrow, centered on the person and respectful of his or her rights.
Exclusive access to the Prometheus-X platform
Benefit from all the services of the Prometheus-X platform and participate in the development process.
Prometheus-X gathers among its founding members the three professional associations of the Edtech sector, representing all digital solutions for education, training and employment, as well as the leaders of infrastructure services for education and skills data circulation.
