NGI-Assure’s Open Call for Technical R&D projects is open! And we are ready to tell you all about it in the NGI-Assure First Open Call Webinar: Get up to €50k to build a reliable Internet for all, to be held on Tuesday 26th January at 10:00 – 11:00 CEST
The internet lies at the heart of our modern economies and societies, but it was not designed to be used in the way we use it now. Additional innovations are needed, in particular to make usage of remote resources on the internet more trustworthy and secure. We will select the most innovative and useful projects through a series of competitive open calls. Projects will receive financial, technical and business support.
We are looking for technical R&D projects that provide some form of assurance regarding any aspect of the internet and the way we use it today or will use it tomorrow. How do we know whether some person is who she claims to be? How can we tell a specific resource on the internet is genuine? How do we assert provenance and integrity? And how can we make this transparent and privacy friendly?
We prefer concrete and viable outcomes. The technology you propose should be relevant to the long-term evolution of the internet and in the interest of actual internet users in the real world. Show us that your idea solves a problem, and what you need to make it happen.
Learn about the objectives of NGI Assure, its open calls and what you can get out of the programme. During this webinar, we will explain the requirements of the call, the type of solutions we are looking for, and the funding and services that selected projects will receive.
