'i4Trust contributes to break 'data silos' and stimulate sharing, re-using and trading of data assets by launching an 'incubator of Trusted B2B Data Sharing ecosystems of collaborating SMEs linked to Digital Innovation Hubs', enabling these ecosystems to share data by implementing iSHARE, CEF Building Blocks and FIWARE, thus boosting the participation of SMEs in different sectors sharing data across value chains, resulting in a significant increase in amount of data shared, and breaking silos.
i4Trust value proposition will contribute to build trust with data users and data suppliers by supporting 32 Bottom Up Experiments that will involve at least 150 SMEs and 32 Digital Innovation Hubs. The project will help them in understanding the demand for data, establishing data sharing partnerships, identifying concrete use cases about what can be done with the data, and adopting user-friendly tools already proved to be key success factors for B2B data sharing such as iSHARE, FIWARE, and CEF Building Blocks, the enablers for B2B Data Sharing that cover operational, legal, technical and governance aspects related with B2B Data Sharing.
The project execution relies on a LEAN consortium of experts in B2B Data Sharing with deep roots in the European DIH Network. The project coordinator, FIWARE FOUNDATION, is linked to a network of European FIWARE iHUBs, they also brings a deep expertise in FIWARE and CEF Building Blocks technologies. FundingBox Accelerator 'European leader in Financial Support to Third Parties' is also member of 6 DIH and partner of another 37 all across Europe. INNOPAY, implementation partner of iSHARE Foundation, brings to the project a deep knowledge in operational, technical, legal and governance issues related to B2B Data Sharing they have accumulated during the research and development process related with the launch of iSHARE, a neutral trust network, with high international acknowledgement and uptake.
