The EU-funded project ONTOCHAIN has reserved €4.2 Million euros of funding to develop a new ecosystem for trusted, traceable, and transparent ontological knowledge management. With iExec, OntOchain will fund innovative projects and applications that could play a role in this ecosystem.
For open call #1, up to 18 project proposals will be selected to receive the first funding award. The goal for these projects is to provide functional and technical specifications for the ONTOCHAIN framework.
Selected projects will receive up to €123k (for Open Call #1), with free access to infrastructure, coaching and technical support.
Over the course of the 7-month program (of open call #1), participants will receive up to €123k (equity-free funding), with technical support for the iExec platform.
How does it work?
In the first phase of the program the 18 selected projects will start by conceptualizing a research project for one of the following topics:
- Semantic interoperability
- On-chain data management
- Off-chain knowledge management
- Ecosystem economy
- Ecosystem scalability and integration
Funding is provided for each phase of Call #1. Six of the 18 projects will proceed to the second phase, receiving further funding to elaborate on their proposal made in Phase 1. Phase 2 will prepare design specifications to be implemented. In addition, the best projects will be awarded for the publication of their outcomes.
