It is clear that Europeans are entitled to control their data. Now we need to move to implementation, looking at the technologies which will allow us to maximise the social value of data.

Olivier BRINGER - Head of the Next Generation Internet Unit - DG CONNECT, EC

Data Portability is the new exciting market opportunity made reality by GDPR.

Eric POL - aNewGovernance

Our project benefited from the DAPSI program significantly by giving us structure, guidance and funding that pushed us to another level. We recommend participating in DAPSI to speed up your data related projects.

Arttu Huhtiniemi - Checkpipe Charlie project

DAPSI offered us balanced coaching sessions and a clear project plan that guided us through the five months to create a prototype that is now being actively discussed and evaluated in various communities and institutions.

Christoph Fabianek - Digital Immunization Passport project

Our participation in DAPSI’s first phase was significantly beneficial for Domi’s progress. In addition to the funding, which gave us the resources to grow our team and push forward our technical development, the business coaching was extremely helpful in unblocking many fundamental uncertainties we faced in trying to move forward as an early-stage startup and develop meaningful practical strategies to move forward with confidence.

Katrie Lowe - Domi project

One of the most valuable tools that DAPSI provided us was business training and coaching! The business training was a great learning experience; it covered techniques from building a product to go-to-market strategies. This training was central to developing our business strategy. We are super happy with our personalized business coaches!

Carola Compá - DPella project

DAPSI has been really useful for our team, it helped fine-tune the long-term business strategy and our business mentor gave us the insight we needed to go from a concept to a workable roadmap and plan. This complemented with the training has really boosted our project towards success.

Miguel Ángel Sicilia Urbán - IDADEV-P2P project

Our participation in the DAPSI program provided us with a well-rounded support environment, significantly contributing to the successful development of the OpenPKG prototype. Takeaways from both business and technical trainings served as valuable input throughout our development journey.

Jurij Skornik - OpenPKG project

Overall, we really value our participation in the first DAPSI phase. The concurrent race with the other contestants provided a constant feedback loop and allowed us to more consciously create a product from state-of-the-art technology. DAPSI allowed us to zoom out and take the bigger picture into account, whilst also providing the means to technically advance our product.

Ben De Meester - PROV4ITDATA project

The DAPSI programme contributed greatly to the success of Digita and even Solid. This is because it gave us the resources to design and develop a component for the Solid ecosystem which has proven to be essential for the ecosystem’s adoption: a legal framework for applications in Europe.

Tom Haegemans - UI-Transfer project
