NGI_TRUST, co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No 825618, foresees as an eligible activity the provision of financial support to third parties, as a means to achieve its own objectives.

Third-party projects may only receive financial support if they are working on privacy and trust enhancing technologies and their application to the Next Generation Internet (as defined broadly by the Horizon 2020 Work- Programme 2018-20, Information and Communication Technologies Part 5.i - Page 51 of 144), namely: as sensors, objects, devices, AI-based algorithms, etc., are incorporated in our digital environment, develop robust and easy to use technologies to help users increase trust and achieve greater control when sharing their personal data, attributes and information.

The NGI Trust open calls aim to:

  • Engage a variety of players (newcomers to H2020 are encouraged) !
  • Explore pre-selected privacy & trust enhancing topics (defined with the support of our advisory board) critical to building a human centric Internet.

NGI TRUST will support third-party projects working in the following areas:

  • Better management of consent, to give more control to the user of their data when accessing and using services. 
  • Technical innovation in privacy enhancing technologies, such as cryptography, federated identity, security and privacy for IoT, privacy-enhancing data transports and data at rest.
  • The application of artificial intelligence/machine learning/neural networks to serve the user’s interests.
  • Bootstrapping trust at the protocol level, to maintain a trustable Internet Infrastructure.
