The 3rd NGI DAPSI open call for data portability innovators is out

€2.5 million funds and support to empower data portability innovators.

Are you an internet innovator ready to tackle the data portability challenges? The NGI Data Portability and Services Incubator (DAPSI) gets you up to €150k, technical & business support, and access to top infrastructure.

Applications are open

DAPSI is launching its third Open Call to distribute 2.5 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 it 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?

Applications are open on F6S until 23rd November 2021, at 5:00 pm CET.

An online webinar will be held on the 13th of October, at 4:00 pm CET, providing potential applicants more information about the programme and the application process.

The selected applicants will participate in a two-phase supporting programme, to develop advanced solutions in the Data and Service Portability fields, attend training sessions, pitch and access top infrastructures, with coaching support. All successful projects will progress to the second phase where the solutions will be fostered to evolve into solid contributions to the research community and/or into commercial solutions able to address market needs.

“This third call is the last one, with the biggest budget allocated until now, 2.5M€, to fund a diverse variety of projects addressing different challenges from Service portability to Data Sovereignty among others. Projects with open-source results making a change in the future internet fit into our DAPSI’s vision.” Sara Mateo – DAPSI project coordinator.
