inLab FIB is working on the i3-Market project, whose aim is to develop technologies and solutions for reliable, interoperable, decentralised infrastructure for data-based collaboration and the federation of existing and future market platforms.

The i3-MARKET project is focused on meeting the required levels of privacy and confidentiality (limitations of opening and equity, threats to security and privacy, problems of interoperability) in marketplace platforms that provide support on legal aspects, control and transparency for sharing data between relevant systems and services. This will enable the integration of multiple marketplaces for safe data exchange and the maintenance of privacy through data spaces and markets.



inLab FIB will be in charge of designing and developing a central interface (API) that integrates all the services developed by other work groups. This ensures interoperability and provides a single entry point to use all these services. In addition, inLab FIB also participates in the deployment and operation of this interface.

The i3-MARKET project will last three years (January 2020 – December 2022) and has received funding of over 5 million euros from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme. The project is coordinated by the National University of Ireland Galway. In addition to inLab FIB, twelve other partners are involved, from Spain, France, Germany, Greece, Belgium, Switzerland, Estonia, Romania, Italy and Portugal.
