DAPSI launched its second open call

€2.1 Million fund and supporting programme to empower data portability innovators

Are you an internet innovator ready to tackle the data portability challenges? Join THE DAPSI programme and get up to €150k, technical & business support, and access to top infrastructure.

Applications are open

The Data Portability and Services Incubator (DAPSI) is launching its second Open Call to distribute 2.1 Million Euros to internet innovators, empowering them to develop new solutions in the Data Portability field.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has the purpose of making significantly easier for citizens to have any data which is stored with one service provider transmitted directly to another provider. But in most cases, it is still difficult to do so.

DAPSI will support top-notch projects through a 9-month supporting 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 grants up to €150k.

How does it work?

In a two-phase supporting programme, the projects will develop advanced solutions in the Data Portability field, attend training sessions, pitch and access top infrastructures, with coaching support. Some of those projects will progress to the second phase where the solutions will be fostered to evolve into solid projects to gain enough traction for deployment and get ready for the market.

Are you ready for the Data Portability challenges?

Deadline: 20 January 2021, 12:00 (noon) CET
