MIWenergía will be a pilot demonstrator of the European DataVaults project.

Our colleagues Pablo Barrachina and Ramón Ruiz represented MIWenergía at the first meeting of the European DataVaults project held in Berlin on January 21, 22 and 23, 2020. This is one of the five research projects within the European Union's Horizon 2020 innovation program in which the company is involved. The project is endowed with a grant of 6 million euros from the European Union, which covers a large part of the established budget. The consortium is made up of 17 participants from companies, non-profit organizations, sports clubs such as Olympiacos of Greece, public bodies and universities. The project coordinator is the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, an applied science research organization with 72 institutes throughout Germany.

DataVaults aims to offer a platform that integrates personal data from various sources and includes secure, reliable and privacy-preserving mechanisms that allow European citizens to make decisions about their digital data and to value them. This novel approach, which will comply with current data protection regulations with the utmost rigor, will standardize the management of user data and make it its owner, and the user will decide which entity can make use of it in exchange for compensation. This multilevel system will provide transparency, privacy, ownership and regulate the use of personal data.

This first meeting served to introduce the partners and to establish the first tasks to be developed in the coming months. The objective of this first meeting was to have a thorough understanding of the goals that the project seeks to achieve and to establish a complete plan of actions. This plan includes both the distribution of roles and tasks and the organization of the different development phases of the project from its beginning to its completion. In this sense, the main task of MIWenergía will be pilot demonstrator, taking care of the most practical part of the project.

 

The project starts in January 2020 and has a duration of 3 years, ending its research development, pilot and testing in December 2022.
