What is DBE LAB?

DBE Lab is a program for collaboration and open development community. It operates apart from DBE Core Ltd as an independent not-for-profit program.

What does DBE LAB offer for its members?

A place for projects

  • DBE LAB offers a place for projects that possibly require collaboration between different organisations.

  • The scope of the project can be ecosystem wide or they can be carried out by one organisation.

  • DBE LAB makes sure that after the project has been completed the results and knowledge generated during the project can be developed further.

Quarterly seminars about current topics related to blockchain technology, API technologies, information sharing standards or related topics.

Safe sandbox environment for testing and piloting purposes outside existing organisational IT infrastructure for solutions based on:

  • Blockchain technologies.

  • Open information sharing standards (PEPPOL, UBL, etc.).

  • API technologies.

  • Portal development.

Connection to The Linux Foundation.

  • The Linux Foundation is an open source development community.

  • Our contacts and discussions with The Linux Foundation started in projects (DSC Core, MDSS, SmartLog, DBECore Transport research projects) several years ago, including significant donations of open source code to the Linux Foundation.

  • As a member of The Linux Foundation DBE LAB offers a link for our members to knowledge and material produced and developed in the projects hosted by The Linux Foundation.

The working principles of DBE LAB are to:

    • Develop new code, results delivered through GitHub.

    • Promote and apply Linux Foundation’s knowledge and result base.

    • Promote and apply Linux Foundation tools, open source, e-learning materials.

    • Promote open source code donations to Linux Foundation via Github and Apache licensing.

Customized workshops and training.

  • DBE LAB offers workshops, for example to innovate new services, applications or educational materials.

  • Hackathons to develop, test and pilot new code according to the principles of Linux Foundation.

  • The topic of the workshop is selected together with the member organisation.

  • The topic can for example be related to usage and opportunities of Blockchain technology, Portal development, API technology, standardized data models (PEPPOL, UBL), etc.
