DAPSI Open Call launched: Up to €150k funding to empower internet innovators in the Data Portability field

The applications to develop new solutions in the Data Portability field are now open!

DAPSI, new open call

Launched in November 2019, The Data Portability and Services Incubator (DAPSI) empowers top internet innovators to develop human-centric technology solutions addressing the challenge of personal data portability on the internet as foreseen under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The purpose of GDPR is to make easier for citizens to have any data which is stored with one service provider transmitted directly to another provider. In reality, it is a challenging task.

That is where DAPSI comes into play. The EU funded project will support up to 50 teams that will research and apply advancement to relevant uses cases through a 9-month programme divided into two phases. In the first phase of the DAPSI programme, the participants will define and develop a prototype of the use case in a specific Data Portability subdomain, attend training sessions, pitch and access top infrastructures, with coaching support. The best teams will progress to phase 2 where the use cases will be fostered to evolve into solid projects to gain enough traction for deployment and readiness for the market.

The Open Call will support projects working in the following sub-domains:

  • Data Transparency for more transparent personal data storage and a more fine-grained data transfer when exercising personal data access right.
  • Data Compatibility & Interoperability to facilitate switches between service providers.
  • Security & Privacy of consumers when their personal data are transferred from one provider to another.
  • Other relevant domain in the Data Portability field.

Visit www.dapsi.ngi.eu and apply before 22 April 2020 12.00 CEST (noon)!
