JadenX GmbH HAS BEEN CHOSEN TO TAKE PART IN ONTOCHAIN, A 3-YEARS EU FUNDED PROJECT THAT EMPOWERS INTERNET INNOVATORS TO CO-DEVELOP A NEW SOFTWARE ECOSYSTEM FOR TRUSTED, TRACEABLE & TRANSPARENT ONTOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE
WHAT IS ONTOCHAIN?
ONTOCHAIN - Trusted, traceable and transparent ontological knowledge on blockchain, is a project funded by the European Commission, part of the European Commission’s Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative. This 3-years programme was launched in September 2020, with a budget to be distributed of 4,2M€.
The initiative will enable internet innovators to develop Blockchain-based knowledge management solutions that address the challenge of secure and transparent knowledge management, as well as service interoperability on the Internet.
The ONTOCHAIN software ecosystem will demonstrate its potential in high-impact domains, such as eHealth, eGovernment, eEducation, eCommerce, decentralized infrastructures, and similar, in order to achieve trustworthy information exchange and trustworthy and transactional content handling.
JadenX is taking part in ONTOCHAIN to create a new decentralized platform where data scientists can find gigs in the data-driven economy and execute their work in a privacy-aware way using blockchain technology and trusted execution environments (TEEs)
HOW WILL IT WORK?
ONTOCHAIN Open Call 1 is dedicated to “Research”. The aim of this call is to establish the ONTOCHAIN framework as a human-centric decentralized & trustworthy solution, based on available technologies.
From the 137 proposals submitted to Open Call 1, a total of 18 projects have been chosen for phase one, the “Research proposal”. During a 2-months period, the internet innovators behind the selected applications will now conceptualize a research project for 1 of the 6 open call topics:
From the initial pool of 18 projects, only a subset of six will move on to phase two, the “Research awards”, based on their ability to elaborate the concept proposed in phase one. They will then have 4 months to prepare design specifications to be implemented in the Open call 2, dedicated to “Protocol suite and software ecosystem foundations”.
Additionally, the best projects will be awarded for the publication of their outcomes.
