Trusted and reliable content on future blockchains
TRUBLO - Trusted and reliable content on future blockchains, is a programme that aims to nurture and facilitate beyond the state-of-the-art research on blockchain technology which will lead to more scalable blockchain based solutions and applications. These developments will contribute to ensuring the exchange of trustworthy and reliable content on social networks and media.
TruBlo the project will implement a series of three (3) open calls that will target academic, R&D research teams and SME companies. They are invited to define and implement small scale research projects on two related focus areas, obtaining technical and business support services from TRUBLO:
1) Focus area 1: Trust and reputation models on blockchains aiming to provide new modalities of trust for media sources and items shared on online news/media outlets and social networks.
This focus area targets innovative applications, technologies, technical approaches and methodologies that increase the levels of trust in blockchain-based information exchange, with emphasis on user generated content on the Internet and social media, considering also data from IoT infrastructures.
2) Focus area 2: Proof-of-validity and proof-of-location, aiming to provide additional mechanisms for trusted user-generated content created and shared by users from their mobile devices.
This focus area is on innovative mechanisms to increase transparency and trustworthiness of user generated genuine content. The users, as being part of a blockchain, can apply additional verification mechanisms to increase transparency, validity and high level of trustworthiness, such as Proof- of-Location and Proof-of Validity.
Selected third parties can get up to €175k, access to specialised knowledge, technology, capital and markets and the opportunity to be engaged in a 15-month programme divided in 2 phases to develop and pilot their solution. Overall forty-five (45) scientific/research/entrepreneur teams will be selected, of which 15 will have the opportunity to also deliver Minimum Viable Products (MVP).
TruBlo Programme is operated by 6 partners with complementary expertise that form the core of a vibrant ecosystem: Worldline (Spain), Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (Greece), Athens Technology Centre (Greece), Deutsche Welle (Germany), F6S (Ireland) and ALASTRIA (Spain).
TruBlo has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement 957228
