i4Trust_ Open Call

i4Trust is looking for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), slightly bigger companies, and Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) that are implementing innovative services based on data sharing to apply for its first Open Call. 

The selected consortia - formed by one DIH and at least three SMEs - will be supported by i4Trust to implement the experiment idea.

Open Call benefits

The SMEs and DIHs selected for i4Trust’s first Open Call will receive up to €120,000 per consortium to design and execute their business case that offers potential socio-economic gains for data sharing and re-use in many applications. They will join a 9-month tailored mentoring programme with other SMEs, DIHs, and technology partners that are collaborating on the creation of data spaces.

The i4Trust Data Sharing Mentoring Programme includes:

  • Guidance on refining the proposed use-case definition
  • Financial support of up to €120,000 per selected experiment
  • Mentoring support for workforce re-skilling/up-skilling
  • Mentoring support relating to legal, operational, technical, and business aspects
  • Support relating to i4Trust technologies

By helping SMEs to work more efficiently and cost-effectively as well as facilitating collaboration with other parties from multiple sectors, i4Trust will help these SMEs to create new services for their current customers, secure new ones, or enter new markets around data value chains.

Deadline 6 September (14:00 CEST).

Applicants who have any questions or need further clarification about the application process - or the Open Call itself - can join the i4Trust Community or contact the i4Trust Open Call Helpdesk.
