  1. The FIWARE Foundation provides open-source Business Ecosystem components, such as the FIWARE Data Space Connector and global intermediary services like Marketplace.
  2. The iSHARE Foundation provides the iSHARE Trust Framework and expert guidance on technical implementation and establishing governance for data spaces.
  3. FundingBox contributes expertise in managing cascade funding projects, accelerator programs, and overall business implementation around FIWARE and iSHARE building blocks.

Together, the i4Trust program pioneers collaboration for effective data exchange, publication, and trading.
