Today’s data marketplaces are large, closed ecosystems that are in the hands of few established players or a consortium that decide on the rules, policies, etc.

Yet, the main barrier of the European data economy is the fact that current data spaces and marketplaces are “siloes”, without support for data exchange across their boundaries.

This webinar will reveal how these boundaries can be overcome through the i3-MARKET “backplane”, which is an infrastructure able to connect all the stakeholders providing the suitable level of trust (consensus-based self-governing, auditability, reliability, verifiable credentials), security (P2P encryption, cryptographic proofs) and privacy (self-sovereign identity, zero-knowledge proof, explicit user consent).

11.00 – 11.05 Welcome from BDVe

11.05 – 11.20 i3-MARKET introduction and project context

• Big Data and Data Marketplaces as a constantly growing field and a key sector in Digital Economy

• Enhancing Data Mobility and Data Transfer as a priority for the EU in terms of the Digital Single Market / The EU Data Strategy

• Trust Security and Privacy as objectives/challenges and central engineering values in the context of Value Sensitive Design and Responsible Engineering

11.20 – 11.50 Three pillars for building a Smart Data Ecosystem

Trust: Everything under control.

With the blockchain technology, i3-MARKET provides an open, decentralized, consensus-based system with a shared and tamper-proof ledger. With verifiable credentials, i3-MARKET provides trusted attestations that could be issued by a trusted party, and self-presented and self-verified by any stakeholder.

Security: Unlock the data with a key.

With a protected hardware wallet, i3-MARKET provides cryptographic keys to secure transactions and data.

Privacy: Meet and overcome GDPR requirements.

With self-sovereign identity, zero-knowledge proof and explicit user consent, i3-MARKET users own their personal and sensitive data and maintain the control on data sharing / exchange.

11.50 – 12.00 Q&A with participants and wrap-up
