Focus of TruBlo
Trust is essential for our society, for how we work, interact and trade with each other.
But more recently we experience a crisis of trust, because of more and more disinformation. For the individual it is impossible to check everything before reading, seeing, hearing. We must start to innovate, to develop next generation software, platforms and tools, using blockchain technology. Under the European Commission Next Generation Internet initiative, TruBlo started in September 2020.

TruBlo conducted three open calls to innovate towards trustable content using blockchain technology
To select the teams receiving funding TruBlo initiated three open calls. Selected participants got up to 175.000 Euro for their project. The total available amount of funding is 4,2 million Euro.
From the first interaction to the selection of the best ideas – we want to bring together innovators in a unique community of early technology research. Contribute to the next generation internet. Read our FAQ to see who can participate and what the criteria are.
Target participants are researchers, innovators and developers either as natural person(s) or from academia as well as from high tech companies including SMEs, legally established in an EU Member State, H2020 associated countries or Overseas Countries and Territories (OCT) linked to the Member States.
What is distributed trust?
“The blockchain is at the forefront of a revolution affecting the way we carry out transactions. It enables individuals to carry out operations among themselves, particularly those of a financial nature, which are guaranteed without the involvement of a trusted third party. This speeds up such interactions, and reduces their cost.”
“The easiest way to think of it is trust that flows through networks, marketplaces and platforms. And so it takes trust away from a top-down institution and decentralizes it using technology.”
