The EU-funded project ONTOCHAIN is calling internet innovators to apply for its second open call and co-develop a new software ecosystem for trusted, traceable, and transparent ontological knowledge management.
A total budget of EUR 1.320.000 is available to support the best proposals. Participants will get grants up to EUR 145k (equity-free funding), free coaching and free access to top infrastructure (iExec and MyIntelliPatent).
"Through Ontochain Open Call 1, 17 teams of high-level innovators got the opportunity to specify the core design aspects of the ONTOCHAIN ecosystem, which will be implemented by the teams selected in Open Call 2. Reaching this second stage of the ONTOCHAIN project cannot be more exciting, as we will see now the ecosystem growing and taking its concrete shape, for enabling trustworthy content and trustworthy information handling in the Next Generation Internet.
We expect that Open Call 2 selected applicants will take over with the same enthusiasm as all the stakeholders so far involved, and make a brilliant contribution to enable a more distributed and transparent internet." Caroline Barelle, ONTOCHAIN Coordinator
