#DLT4Good: Co-creating a European Ecosystem of Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) for Social and Public Good
The EU Policy Lab is kick-starting another project in the Blockchain space! This new project is supported by the European Parliament, and will run in cooperation with The Next Generation Internet Unit of DG CNECT (Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content & Technology).
More about the project in the EU Policy Lab blog #DLT4Good dedicated page.
#DLT4Good Call for Proposals
In this context, the European Commission is launching a Call for Proposals (CfP) to select a beneficiary / consortium to support the co-creation of a European ecosystem of organisations working on DLTs for Social and Public Good (deadline: 28 May 2019; total budget available: 700 000 EUR; duration of the action: 15 months).
The activities of the selected beneficiary / consortium will support cutting-edge solutions proposed by developers, entrepreneurs, start-ups and other entities in the DLT space.
The central point will be the co-creation of a unique Accelerator programme to stimulate the piloting of DLT-based social and public applications to address existing or emerging sustainability challenges, and ultimately drive positive change for the common good.
Applicants to the CfP must demonstrate proven multidisciplinary knowledge or previous activity in the fields of: blockchains and other DLTs, incubation and acceleration of emerging technology-based solutions, digital social innovation, and social impact investment.
All information and documents required for this CfP can be found in the Digital Single Market funding portal.
All questions should be sent to: cnect-e3 [at] ec [dot] europa [dot] eu
Almost 1 year after #Blockchain4EU
Our last project on Blockchain officially ended last May 2018. But the outputs and insights of #Blockchain4EU: Blockchain for Industrial Transformations are still generating impact, from policy-making to industry and SMEs.
To learn more about #Blockchain4EU and the five speculative Blockchain prototypes co-created with stakeholders, you can download our Final Report or visit the project’s webpage here in the EU Policy Lab blog.
