*About the DECODE project*

Today’s Internet is becoming increasingly centralised, slowing innovation
and challenging its potential to revolutionise society and the economy in a
pluralistic manner. DECODE will develop practical alternatives through the
creation, evaluation and demonstration of a distributed and open
architecture for managing online identity, personal and other data, and
collective governance in a citizen-friendly and privacy-aware fashion.
Strong digital rights that makes it possible for data subjects to determine
access rights to their information through flexible entitlements and open
standard-based agreements regarding data governance (on the model of
Creative Commons licenses) will be woven into the technological

DECODE will increase digital sovereignty of European citizens by enabling
them to produce, access and control their data and exchange contextualised
information in real-time, and in a confidential, and scalable manner.
DECODE will develop a modular privacy-aware IoT hub with a free and open
source operating system backed by a state of the art blockchain
infrastructure supporting smart-contracts and privacy protections.

The architecture will be demonstrated through four pilots in Barcelona and
Amsterdam, in the field of digital democracy, citizen sensing, and
collaborative economy. The pilots will be run with the active involvement
of social entrepreneurs, hackers, and makers. Innovators will be able to
build solutions on top of the platform through hackathons and open
challenges, while ensuring their security, resilience and privacy
preserving qualities. This aims to create a decentralised innovation
ecosystem that will attract a critical mass able to shift the current
centralised data- driven economy towards a decentralised, sustainable and
commons-based economy. DECODE puts agency and data control in the hands of
citizens, to improve citizens’ well-being and society for the collective
benefit of all.
