Data Portability and Services Incubator

Project description

An innovative research of the data portability and incubation for European markets

Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in 2018, all citizens have been able to obtain, store and reuse personal data for their own purposes across different services. It allows individuals to benefit from applications and services that can use this data. The EU-funded DAPSI project aims to promote innovative research on data portability that will allow to find and elaborate for the market best, mutually most-promising cases of matching of science and business. The DAPSI consortium will select up to 58 European expert teams made up of researchers, SMEs and high-tech start-ups to unite knowledge and experience developing MVP. The best of them will enter incubation, receiving programme support with development funds, methodology, access to top infrastructure, training and other means.


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies since 2018, with the purpose of making significantly easier for citizens to have any data which is stored with one service provider transmitted directly to another provider.
DAPSI will foster the advanced research in the Data Portability field through the support to researchers, SMEs and high tech startups from all over Europe.
DAPSI proposes a match making process: an intersection between science and business, an opportunity to unite the knowledge and experience of both areas to achieve a common goal around Data Portability. To do so, DAPSI consortium will select the best applications to build complementary teams that will research and apply this advancement to relevant uses cases with market potential in a collaborative way.
Up to 58 teams will be selected and only the best ones will progress through three phases of 10 months in an incubation programme where experts in diverse field will provide a successful working methodology, access to top infrastructure, training in business and data related topics, coaching, mentoring, visibility, community building and investment. On top of that, each DAPSI team will receive up to 195k€ equity-free funding, distributing a total amount of 5.6M€ through three open calls.
The consortium led by ZABALA and participated by F6S, CAP DIGITAL, IMT, FRAUNHOFER and ENGINEERING will also work to contribute to the progress of the NGI community in the Data Portability domain generating insights and recommendations in the field.
