Orvium has been selected as one of the brightest data portability projects in Europe

Announcements May 5, 2021

Orvium is taking part in the Data Portability & Services Incubator (DAPSI), a 3-year EU funded project that empowers internet innovators to develop new solutions in the data portability field.

What is DAPSI?

The Data Portability and Services Incubator (DAPSI) is a EU funded project, under the European Commission's Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative, to empower top internet innovators to develop human-centric solutions, addressing the challenge of personal data portability on the internet, as foreseen under the GDPR and make it a significantly easier for citizens to have any data which is stored with one service provider transmitted directly to another provider.

DAPSI will support top-notch projects through a 9-month incubation programme where experts in diverse fields will provide a successful working methodology, access to top infrastructure, training in business and data related topics, coaching, mentoring, and a vibrant ecosystem. On top of that, each DAPSI project can receive up to €150k equity-free funding.

Orvium is taking part in DAPSI through our proposal called Tycho, an open source protocol for research data sharing that returns control of the data to data donors, ensuring a secure, transparent and seamless environment for data sharing and collaboration. It aims to remove the current inefficiencies of Open Research Data offering a FAIR (Findable, Accesible, Interoperable and Re-usable) and human centric model.

How does it work?

In this two-phase supporting programme, the projects will develop advanced solutions in the Data Portability field. In the first phase (Kick-Start phase) the teams will have around 5 months to develop a solution related to a specific use case. After an assessment made by a panel of qualified experts, and based on milestones and results achieved, the teams will be invited into phase 2 (Booster phase). The use cases will then be fostered for 4 more months, to evolve into solid projects, to gain enough traction for deployment and get ready for the market.
