The Data Portability and Services Incubator, under the European Commission’s Next Generation Internet, is issuing an open call to develop tech solutions and services in the data portability field.
Grants and mentorships are provided to projects that aid with data transparency, compatibility and interoperability, security and privacy, and other topics related to data portability.
Streamr is not in collaboration with the DAPSI, but this could be a great opportunity to submit a proposal for a Data Union or other solution that uses the Streamr stack towards those goals and get the resources to build it.
For example, the Swash app currently allows individuals to aggregate and monetise (or 'crowdsell') their real-time data. A brief review of Swash will show it ticks all the boxes on data transparency, compatibility, and privacy.
Streamr is prepared to offer $300 worth of DATA to the three best viable proposals submitted to the DAPSI Open Call. Just post a summary here on the dev forum and email a PDF of your proposal description (in the format specified in Section 4 of the application form) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The DAPSI Open Call will accept entries until the 22nd April 2020 at 12:00 (noon) CEST.
