The call is open for researchers, innovators, developers from academia, startups, high tech companies or natural persons.
Focus of the call
Trust is essential to societies. But currently an increasing amount of disinformation makes it difficult to trust information in our multiple daily interactions.
- How could we use scalable blockchain technology for new protocols, apps, solutions or platforms?
- How could we combine blockchain and content to ensure trustworthy and reliable content?
The objective of the TruBlo Open Call No. 2 is to invite academic teams, researchers, SMEs and startups to define and implement small scale research projects on one of the two topics:
- Trust and reputation models on blockchains
This focus area targets innovative applications, technologies, technical approaches and methodologies that increase the level of trust in blockchain-based information exchange, with emphasis on user generated content on the internet and social media, considering also data from IoT (Internet of things) infrastructures.
- Proof-of-validity and proof-of-location
This focus area aims to find innovative mechanisms to increase transparency and trustworthiness of user generated genuine content. For example: How could users, being part of a blockchain, add or apply additional verification mechanisms to increase transparency, validity and high level of trustworthiness, such as Proof-of-Location and Proof-of Validity? Such applications will be disseminated through the European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO).
