    IN BRIEF
    Up to 4.2 Millions € funding and mentoring program with best international experts in
    Semantic Web, Linked Data, ontology engineering, Blockchain interoperability, knowledge
    management, distributed and decentralised computing, business models for trusted
    knowledge …
    ONTOCHAIN was launched in September 2020 to empower innovators and end users through 3 Open
    Calls to develop blockchain-based knowledge management solutions that will be part of a novel
    software ecosystem for a better share of knowledge and value.
    ONTOCHAIN - Trust traceable and transparent ontological knowledge on blockchain, is a European
    project funded by the European Commission under the European Union’s Horizon 2020
    Research and Innovation Programme, and part of the European Commission’s Next Generation
    Internet (NGI) initiative.

    OBJECTIVE
    The internet of the future should
    be more resilient, trustworthy
    and sustainable.
    More than ever, our digital life is an extension of our
    physical world. It is now possible for citizen from all over
    the world to participate in the generation and use of
    knowledge like never before.
    However, from the current standpoint and when it comes
    to exchange of knowledge, Internet can’t assure that
    bias or systematic abuse of global trust are avoided.
    The way knowledge is generated, curated and stored
    raises effectively some concerns. Citizens everywhere
    are at risk of being presented partial or biased
    information reflecting the viewpoint of their provider.
    It is thus time from now on, to handle our digital life
    with the same critical, moral and ethical thinking that
    we use in our physical world.
    The ONTOCHAIN project aims to develop a new
    software technologies stack at the meeting point
    between the Semantic Web and Blockchain to enable
    trustworthy data and services exchange as well as
    trustworthy content handling for different domains e-
    Education, e-Health, e-Government, e-
    Commerce, e-Tourism, e-Infrastructures, Industry 4.0
    entertainment, and so forth.

     Integrate with at least Ethereum smart contracts and the EVM, although support for additional chains is
    encouraged
     Support for semantic data (e.g., properties such as a vehicle color) and semantic queries (e.g., via SPARQL)
     Support a variety of data sources, data formats and off-chain storage mediums/services
     Integration of identity verification or decentralized identity management
     New trust-building mechanisms to assure authentic and trustworthy data feed for smart contracts.

  16. | ONTOCHAIN.NGI.EU
    Motivations: Bi-directional operations (e.g., transfer of information and assets) between the ONTOCHAIN
    network and a selection of the most widely used networks, as well as communications between different chains
    within the ONTOCHAIN network.
    Requirements:
     The topic is open to any existing blockchain solution but at least Ethereum, Tezos and Hyperledger Fabric must
    be supported.
     Support for (at least) ERC-20, ERC-721, ERC-777 and ERC-1155.
     Solutions must rely as much as possible on industry-wide standards and support existing chains with no
    modifications of their protocols, clients, virtual machines or programming framework.
     The trust, validity and critical metadata attached to data/transactions must be preserved during a transfer within
    ONTOCHAIN and with external blockchains.
     Provide efficient methods for reducing computational complexity and transaction sizes between ONTOCHAIN
    and other blockchain ecosystems.
