The Internet has turned our existence into the digital era, revolutionising our health, our wellbeing, our social life, our education, our information. However, multiple threats related to truthfulness, trust and identity (ID) have been identified when people interact in this digital world: delusion and manipulation, personal privacy violation & personal data exploitation, unknown provenance of information, anonymity in favour of criminal activities, biases in AI algorithms, spread of fake news, skills mismatches, serious breaches of security to mention some of them. In this context, TrustChain will tackle several challenges pertaining to trustworthy and reliable digital identity, to resilient, secure and reliable data pathways, to economics and trading of data, to energy efficiency for data storage, transport and sharing, to seamless services and data flows.
