Sprints

In pursuance of its core objectives, TDL regularly awards up to €25,000 for innovative short projects led by an SME or knowledge institute. TDL has been working on the operational implementation of an industry-driven ecosystem stimulating the development, promotion and acceptance of trustworthy ICT since 2009. The strategic research and innovation agenda (SRA) for trustworthy ICT for Europe includes the promotion and support of short projects to validate technology, interoperability and trustworthiness proofs of concept. The purpose of a Sprint is to validate new, innovative and trustworthy ICT in very short project cycles of approximately three months with three project stages: design, execution, and dissemination. After a Sprint is completed, the results are immediately published to a broad audience.
