Short description: TruBlo programme aims to nurture and facilitate beyond the state-of-the-art research on blockchain technology which will lead to more scalable blockchain-based solutions and applications, that will contribute to ensuring the exchange of trustworthy and reliable content on social networks and media. The objective of TruBlo Open Call 1 is to invite academic teams, researchers, SMEs and startups to define and implement small scale research projects on two related focus areas:
- Trust and reputation models on blockchains
This focus area targets innovative applications, technologies, technical approaches and methodologies that increase the levels of trust in blockchain-based information exchange, with emphasis on user generated content on the Internet and social media, considering also data from IoT infrastructures.
- Proof-of-validity and proof-of-location
This focus area is on innovative mechanisms to increase transparency and trustworthiness of user generated genuine content. The users, as being part of a blockchain, can apply additional verification mechanisms to increase transparency, validity and high level of trustworthiness, such as Proof- of-Location and Proof-of Validity.
Selected third parties can get up to €175k, access to specialised knowledge, technology, capital and markets and the opportunity to be engaged in a 15-month programme divided in 2 phases to develop and pilot their solution.
Target participants: The target audience of TruBlo Open Call 1 – are researchers, innovators and developers either as natural person(s) or from academia as well as from high tech companies including SMEs, legally established in an EU Member State, H2020 associated countries or Overseas Countries and Territories (OCT) linked to the Member States.
