DAPSI, the Data Portability and Services Incubator, is a European project funded by the European Commission under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, and part of the European Commission’s Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative.
It was launched in November 2019, to empower top internet innovators to develop human-centric technology solutions addressing the challenge of personal data portability on the internet as foreseen under the GDPR.
DAPSI will support up to 50 third parties through a total of three open calls in the coming three years, distributing a total amount of €5.6M.
The selected third parties will be engaged in a 9-month programme divided in two phases where experts in diverse fields will provide a successful working methodology, access to top infrastructure, training in business and data related topics, coaching, mentoring, visibility and community building.
This 3rd Open Call allocates €2.5M to fund third parties such as researchers, SMEs and entrepreneurs among others, to conduct advanced research applied to Data Portability use cases. This will entail a substantial advance in the state of the art, delivering new services with potential to reach the market in the short run and contribute to the research community.
