About the project

i3-MARKET will develop technologies and solutions for a trusted (secure, self-governing, consensus-based and auditable), interoperable (semantic-driven) and decentralised (scalable) infrastructure for data-driven collaboration and federation of existing and new future marketplace platforms. The i3-MARKET Backplane will enable federation via interoperability of the existing and future emerging data spaces and marketplaces.

It will allow SMEs (as well as other stakeholders) to share, trade (monetize) their data assets, as well as to use and buy it from the others. Thus, it will incentivise and enable the creation of a more trusted European data market.

The i3-MARKET project will develop lacking technologies and tools that help overcome the main barriers of current data markets and economies, namely: openness and fairness limitations, security and privacy threats, interoperability issues.
