We are glad to announce a recent achievement for the R&D project we are participating with our blockchain capabilities, VPP4ISLANDS project. So, VPP4ISLANDS project has been recently selected by ETIP SNET, "European Technology & Innovation Platforms Smart Networks for Energy Transition", as an outstanding project in the field of "Market Based Energy Systems". The project will be presented in the next ETIP SNET Regional Workshop, in particular in the Session 1 of the workshop "Market Based Energy Systems" that will take place online on 9 November from 9:30-13:00. More information: www.etip-snet.eu
Regarding the forthcoming HORIZON EUROPE calls and topics which are relevant to clusters: CL4 (WP7 - Digital, Industry and Space), CL5 (WP8 - Climate, Energy and Mobility) and CL6 (WP9 - Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment), we are planning to base our contribution into Blockchain technology and tokenization for data transparency, security and enhanced adaptation. Specifically for tokenization we should mention that it is quite essential to numerous transactions aiming to remove any original sensitive payment or personal data from business systems, thus to protect them from negative financial impacts of a data theft. It provides safety and security to consumers and also compliance with industry regulations significantly easier, being applied to any potential vertical today. Feel free to contact us for further information and also to discuss potential collaboration.

BC2050 is representing project VPP4ISLANDS to the "DATA MANAGEMENT" Working Groups which is created from BRIDGE Initiative. The BRIDGE Initiative helps to connect engaged members and relevant Smart Grid and green Energy, Islands, and Digitalisation Projects to create a structured view of cross-cutting priorities. In 2021, 22 new European projects have joined BRIDGE initiative, participated in the discussions related to the green energy transition and contributed to the elaboration of novel EU directives by innovating the EU’s energy system and sharing their best practices. This happened during the BRIDGE General Assembly which took place on 2nd, 3rd and 4th of March, virtually, presenting the latest developments of the initiative. BC2050 attended the BRIDGE GA representing VPP4ISLANDS project.

TAP2SOSTM, the IoT/M2M bracelet for secure storing and retrieving of medical data through Blockchain technology, has been upgraded to run on LTO Network. LTO Network is optimized for lightweight transactions, offering increased performance and smooth operation to all Blockchain applications that run on it. LTO Network utilizes anchoring techniques which are cost-effective and easy to implement, while providing increased integrity and enhanced transparency. The data is never stored on the blockchain. Instead it is hashed before anchoring and only the hash is stored on-chain. This, makes all involved data erasable on demand at any given moment, rendering TAP2SOSTM completely GDPR compliant.
A large part of our team's brainpower is fueling projects from around the world, working closely with valuable and like-minded collaborators. Right now, we are participating in #VPP4Islands, an EU initiative aiming to improve the performance of distributed renewable energy sources (e.g. storage systems, dispatchable sources, and variable outputs). Alongside a number of stellar teams coming from both academic and business backgrounds, we aim to use this initiative to stir positive economic, technological, environmental, and social changes in the field of energy!
Its proposal is about an Intelligent Blockchain-enabled Space-Assets Protection System. The final winner from all the NATO countries will be chosen in a special event of NATO at 29 of June in Portugal.
As the President of Aratos Group and CEO of Aratos Systems BV, Dr. Nikos Bogonikolos, stated, Aratos continuing the presentation of cutting-edge innovations proposed a system which combines the Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain Technology for the safety of space assets like satellites, spacecrafts etc. “We are proud and happy that our Dutch small-medium enterprise, with the contribution of Greek scientists in its team, succeeded in qualifying at the finals of the NATO Innovation Challenge”, ended up Dr. Nikos Bogonikolos.
Aratos Systems BV (www.aratos-systems.com) has already developed other similar technological solutions for the security and defence with the use of space technologies like the innovative system for the calculation of the temperatures in the cities in high spatial resolution of 12.5m x 12.5m and near real time.
The Municipality of Argos-Mycenae became the first Municipality to install Blockchain technology. In the context of the integration of new technologies and the modernization of its administrative structures, the Municipality of Argos-Mycenae became the first Municipality of Greece to implement the Blockchain technology in its services.
The specific application created and implemented by Blockchain 2050 BV, a member of ARATOS Group, is expected to lead to a series of innovative and efficient services to citizens, while ensuring the inviolability of a series of documents issued and certified by municipal services. In addition, time-consuming and costly procedures for certifying and uniqueness of a document are avoided, as it is an interactive platform for electronic signature and document authentication with Blockchain technology.
Thus, the need to provide services that are more reliable, faster, safer and with the least possible participation of the citizen and the public service is effectively covered, while reducing the possibility of errors to the minimum possible level.
The entry of the Municipality of Argos-Mycenae in Blockchain technology creates the belief that other Municipalities and public bodies will follow the path of technological development of new systems, modernizing their structures and services to the citizens.
The advent of the Covid-19 Healthcare crisis has generated the need to hastily implement tools to track the mass movement of people and assist in maintaining essential services to curb the advance of the pandemic. This rapid deployment has generated a number of concerns regarding privacy, validation and data protection, fueling the need to ensure the security and integrity of data transmission and information exchange. The use of Blockchain Technology can ensure the validity and protection of information by serving as a security layer when mass data transactions of sensitive information are required. Foster trust and enable cooperation during crises by securing transactions with Blockchain technology. Enable secure transactions during any crisis and protect your data by utilizing our products:

As of 30/June/2020, a team of stakeholders from quite different verticals, work objectives and geographical origins gave birth to a brilliant initiative of a quite pioneering vision: Space Waste management via Blockchain Technology. The project aims to counter the problem of space debris. More than 20.000 objects larger than 3 inches and over 128 million of smaller size, are populating several orbits around Earth. Most of them pose a great risk since they contain toxic and hazardous materials. By using Blockchain technology, space waste management will be effectively conducted by accurately mapping out floating debris. Blockchain technology is selected as a major pillar of this pioneering work because it presents significant potential for secure data sharing and improving the robustness of data collection of space debris and space waste management among the numerous projects and different stakeholders.
