Calls promoted by ZABALA

At ZABALA Innovation, we organise and manage several cascade funding projects. Here, you can see some of the most important calls in which we participate.


The aim of DAPSI is to facilitate citizens’ transfer of data from one service provider to another, in a simpler and more straightforward way, in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This regulation was developed to give individuals better control over their personal data.

Switching from one service provider to another entails significant effort and difficulty for some users. Data processing service providers should develop interoperable formats that allow data portability, as soon as possible.


REACH aims to launch second generation data incubators for start-ups and SMEs in Europe to develop innovative experiments through the use of data value chains.

Large online consumer platforms have demonstrated that data is an asset which translates directly into value, and this value can be multiplied by merging data shared between stakeholders into a single value chain.


The goal of EUHUBS4DATA is to create a federation of reference in Europe for cross-border Big Data experimentation and innovation. It aims to provide a comprehensive pan-European catalogue of data sources and services to foster data-driven innovation at local and regional levels.

The importance and impact that data has on the European economy, industry and society today is unquestionable.


The project seeks to create a European data-driven innovation hub that brings together entrepreneurs, artists and other stakeholders in the media value chain to develop a programme that expands on current models and finds new ways for individuals to engage with quality journalism, scientific education and democratic processes.

There is certainly a challenge in creating new approaches, experiences and information technologies that both entertain and educate at the same time.


DigiFed implements a business plan for the sustainability of the federation of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH), while fostering the uptake of advanced digital technologies by EU SMEs, focusing on non-digital companies to encourage the introduction of digital technologies in their product and service offerings.

DigiFed opens the way to a new era of digitisation of European industry. It aims to bring a new wave of products and services enhanced by digital functionality and fulfilling the needs of society and the market.


NESOI aims to unlock the potential of EU islands to integrate the European Energy Transition. Green energy investments will be made available to an audience of 2,400 inhabited EU islands, providing the opportunity to test innovative energy technologies and approaches in a competitive way.

Funds are available to finance energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Many islands are engaged in the energy transition; however, most of them do not have the necessary, required experience.
