CanaryBit is taking part in the Data Portability & Services Incubator (DAPSI) programme, a 3-year EU funded project that empowers internet innovators to develop new solutions in the data portability field.
What is DAPSI?
The Data Portability and Services Incubator (DAPSI) is a EU funded project, under the European Commission’s Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative, to empower top internet innovators to develop human-centric solutions, addressing the challenge of personal data portability on the internet, as foreseen under the GDPR and make it significantly easier for citizens to have any data which is stored with one service provider transmitted directly to another provider.
DAPSI will support top-notch projects through a 9-month incubation programme where experts in diverse fields will provide a successful working methodology, access to top infrastructure, training in business and data related topics, coaching, mentoring, and a vibrant ecosystem. On top of that, each DAPSI project can receive up to €150k equity-free funding.
CanaryBit is taking part in DAPSI with the “Confidential Computing Enclaves for the Masses” (CoCEM) project.
Cloud computing enables seamless data access across multiple devices, collaborative work and centralized data storage. However, using the cloud imposes significant limitations in terms of data confidentiality and privacy, control over geographic and jurisdictional placement of data, as well as data and service portability across cloud providers. While some of the challenges have promising solutions, these promises remain unfulfilled. Our project aims to design and prototype an orchestration service for Confidential Computing workload deployment, paving the way for unprecedented user empowerment!
How does it work?
In this two-phase supporting programme, the projects will develop advanced solutions in the Data Portability field. In the first phase (Kick-Start phase) the teams will have around 5 months to develop a solution related to a specific use case. After an assessment made by a panel of qualified experts, and based on milestones and results achieved, the teams will be invited into phase 2 (Booster phase). The use cases will then be fostered for 4 more months, to evolve into solid projects, to gain enough traction for deployment and get ready for the market.
