During the year we will propose hands-on collaborative workshops to inform software development, exploring and refining patterns of group collaboration. Participants sharing similar interests can form a group and enhance their collaborative practices. They can choose to work and organize online or offline—when they reconnect to the Internet, they may optionally share their work globally.
We're designing and documenting a peer-to-peer framework that others can build upon and will provide a set of reusable free software libraries, components and reference implementations. DREAM components are designed to work together but may be used independently:
- DROMEDAR provides conflict-free replicated data structures to distribute linked data;
- UPSYCLE provides a peer-to-peer networking system for private encrypted group collaboration;
- SHRUTHI provides unikernel orchestration and provisioning capabilities.
DREAM is part of the NGI POINTER funding scheme (
NGI POINTER-20) and
received a 200,000 € grant to research and develop DREAM
components over the year 2021. The grant is handled by petites singularités, a non-profit based in Brussels.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme within the framework of the NGI-POINTER Project funded under grant agreement No 871528.
