Focus of the call
Trust is essential to societies. But currently an increasing amount of disinformation makes it difficult to trust information in our multiple daily interactions.

  • How could we use scalable blockchain technology for new protocols, apps, solutions or platforms?
  • How could we combine blockchain and content to ensure trustworthy and reliable content?

The objective of the TruBlo Open Call No. 2 is to invite academic teams, researchers, SMEs and startups to define and implement small scale research projects on one of the two topics:

  • Trust and reputation models on blockchains
    This focus area targets innovative applications, technologies, technical approaches and methodologies that increase the level of trust in blockchain-based information exchange, with emphasis on user generated content on the internet and social media, considering also data from IoT (Internet of things) infrastructures.
  • Proof-of-validity and proof-of-location
    This focus area aims to find innovative mechanisms to increase transparency and trustworthiness of user generated genuine content. For example: How could users, being part of a blockchain, add or apply additional verification mechanisms to increase transparency, validity and high level of trustworthiness, such as Proof-of-Location and Proof-of Validity? Such applications will be disseminated through the European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO).
