TruBlo, an EU project co-run by DW Innovation, has started its first open call. The goal is to support concepts, ideas and demonstrators for trustable content that use blockchain/distributed ledger technology. TruBlo will distribute almost one million euros among applicants.

The call opened in January, and the deadline for submissions is March 19th, 2021. Teams from start-ups, SMEs or universities are welcome to apply to get initial funding for their ideas. A total budget of € 950,000 Euro is available; successful applicants will receive € 75,000 each.

Ideas should focus on one of the following topics:

  1. Trust and reputation models on blockchains

    This focus area targets innovative approaches that increase the level of trust in information exchange, with an emphasis on user generated content (UGC) – and also considering data from Internet of Things (iOT) infrastructures.

  2.  Proof-of-validity and proof-of-location

    This focus area aims to find innovative mechanisms to increase transparency and trustworthiness of original UGC
