DAPSI third open call results are out



Four years after the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into action, the power of data portability is not yet fully in people’s hands. Top internet innovators across Europe are working on top-notch ideas and solutions to address this challenge. The 20 more promising proposals have just been announced by the EU project DAPSI – Data Portability & Services Incubator.

From solutions allowing users to sell their data, to components for improving diabetes data interoperability, or software that makes it easy to create and manage forms that respect the digital rights of the people who use it, the variety of areas covered by the selected projects is wide. The innovators behind them are now entering a 9-month journey, to work on their proposed solutions. 

This is the biggest batch of data portability projects ever selected by DAPSI. The programme now reaches a total of 46 solutions supported, selected through three open calls.

In this third and last open call of the DAPSI project, a total of 147 applications were submitted, between the 23rd of September 2021 and the 23rd of November 2021, coming from innovators from 31 different countries. A panel of external experts had the mission to evaluate the proposals received and the process ended up with the selection of 20 new high potential projects to solve data and service portability challenges.

The DAPSI journey

DAPSI will support the selected projects through a 9-month incubation 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 up to €150k equity-free funding.

In this two-phase programme, the teams will develop advanced solutions in the Data Portability field, to make it significantly easier for citizens to have any data which is stored with one service provider transmitted directly to another provider

In the first phase (Kick-Start phase) they have around 5 months to develop a solution related to a specific use case.  After an assessment made by a panel of qualified experts, and based on milestones and results achieved, the teams will be invited into phase 2 (Booster phase). The use cases will then be fostered for 4 more months, to evolve into solid projects, to gain enough traction for deployment and get ready for the market.
