i4Trust Open Call – Supporting SMEs develop innovative services through data sharing

i4Trust is a collaborative initiative boosting the development of innovative services around new data value chains in multiple sectors.

i4Trust is building a sustainable ecosystem where companies will be able to create innovative services by means of breaking “data silos” through sharing, re-using and trading of data assets.

i4Trust launched its first Open Call to select up to 16 Bottom-Up Experiments  (“Experiments”) in order to:

  • Mobilize DIH and European Companies to understand the demand for data, establish data-sharing partnerships and identify concrete use cases relying on trusted and effective sharing of data
  • Support the aforementioned entities in adopting the user-friendly and proven technologies for data sharing based on CEF-compatible iSHARE and FIWARE Building Blocks, which cover all the operational, legal, technical and governance aspects related to data sharing
WHO CAN APPLY?

Experiments have to be proposed by a consortium made up of the following types of applicants:

  • SMEs/slightly bigger companies
  • Digital Innovation Hubs

Proposals are requested to have at least 4 entities per experiment, 1 DIH and a minimum of 3 SMEs/slightly bigger companies.

All of them established in EU member states, in Associated Countries, or in the United Kingdom.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

The selected experiments will become part of the customized 9-month i4Trust Mentoring Program, which includes:

  • Financial support up to €120,000.00 per experiment
  • Refinement of the proposed Use-Case definition
