As an integrated part of the project, the Consortium has involved several external parties to share with them the approach, methodology and results of the entire project. The “Project advisory board”, is composed of recognized experts in a variety of fields including blockchain, self-sovereign identity (SSI), security and data privacy, law, ethics and business.
Within the project we planned to organize three meetings to show our work and collect feedback to better address the various next steps in the different work packages. On November 13th, 2020 we held the first Project Advisory Board meeting, online, during which the advisors had the chance to get in touch with all work package leaders and contributors. During the meeting we first presented our business approach, in terms of market analysis and business model; then we continued with a technical presentation showing our approach in SSI, Crypto and Marketplace development, with a focus on the architecture designed. Finally, the discussion focused on the ethical and legal aspects related to the processing of personal data in the project.
