LEDGER, a European project financed by the European Commission, is looking for 32 human-centric innovators to develop Minimum Viable Products and Services, in order to achieve new models that preserve citizens’ digital sovereignty, where data is a common good owned by citizens and wealth created by data-driven platforms is equally distributed.
 
LEDGER is looking for SMEs, teams, organisations and researchers that want to shift data management, leveraging on decentralised algorithms based on blockchains, distributed ledger technology (DLT) and/or peer-to-peer (P2P) technologies to address Privacy-by-Design, reliability, trustworthiness and openness to build human-centric solutions.
 
The 16 selected companies will go through a 9-month customised venture builder programme receiving up to €150K in funding, and the best 8 will be offered additional €50K and will get in a business-focused programme of 3 months.
 
Eligibility

Teams might be composed of either:

  • minimum 1 and maximum 2 legal persons (SME, research organisations, foundations) with a multidisciplinary team composed by at least 3 profiles (humanistic/social/technical researcher, technological developer, business development/entrepreneur) or
  • minimum 3 natural persons in a multidisciplinary team (at least an humanistic/social/technical researcher, technological developer and business development/ entrepreneur).

The teams must consist of one legal entities or at least 3 natural persons legally established in an EU member state or in Associated Countries.

Projects (Technology Transfer Experiments) have to be based in Research components, relevant for the topic of Privacy-by-Design, Distributed Data Governance and consisting in development, test and validation of technical and economic viability of Minimum Viable Product (MVP) or Service.

The results of these bottom-up projects should be compliant with Open Licences (i.e. Open Hardware, Open Software and/or Creative Commons)

The sensors will transmit water extraction data to orbiting satellites and then to the IBM Blockchain Platform hosted in the IBM Cloud. The blockchain will record of all data exchanges or transactions made in an append-only, immutable ledger. The blockchain also uses smart contracts, whereby transactions are automatically executed when the conditions are matched.
