Here’s your challenge
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.
This means European residents need you to develop interoperable solutions that enable data portability and tackle the following issues:
Participate in a vibrant two-phase programme
What’s in it for you
Please note that the catalogue of data related services and business support activities may be subject to change according to projects’ needs and based on consortium decision.
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.
Data Portability is the new exciting market opportunity made reality by GDPR.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
