DAPSI call deadline 20/01/2021

On the topic of how I should report the income to the French IRS and after no less than four mails and four phone conversations, I will settle for adding the amount as a salary from a foreign country within the Euro zone, as explained in the following document:

Today I sent a formal request with the subgrant agreement attached to the french IRS:


Je souhaite savoir de quelle façon déclarer une subvention que je recevrais sur l’année 2021 et dont la source est la Commission Européenne. Vous trouverez ci-joint l’unique document qui est signée par l’organisation mandatée par la commission afin de gérer les fonds et moi même, à titre particulier.

Grant Agreement No.: 871498
Call: H2020-ICT-2018-2020
Topic: ICT-24-2018-2019
Type of action: RIA

J’ai a plusieurs reprises appelé et conversé avec des personnes du trésor public qui m’ont conseillé de faire ma demande par écrit dans cet espace.

En vous remerciant par avance de votre aide.


2021-05-06-tresor-public-question.pdf (35.6 KB)

And the reply (definitive: I don’t have the option to answer) was received today:


si vous êtes lié par un contrat de travail avec l’employeur et que par conséquent vous êtes assimilé à un salarié, vous devez déclarer cette subvention en salaires en ligne 1AJ “traitements et salaires” de la déclaration n°2042.


To be honest I don’t quite understand what it means (the employer can only be interpreted as my current employer who pays my salary part time … but it has zero relation with the DAPSI grant so I don’t see how it is relevant), but I’ll follow their directions. Should they object that I did wrong at a later time, this will at least show that I made an honest mistake.

Thanks in advance for your help

Dear Loïc,

I copy my colleague redacted in charge of this webinar so he can clarify.

I received and accepted an invitation for the tomorrow google meet meeting Application Infrastructure and Support Tools (Thursday, May 13, 2021 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM).

I received the same invitation and replied:

Would it be possible to setup the videoconference on a service hosted with Free Software such as https://jitsi.org/ or https://bigbluebutton.org? Or to be able to join using a regular phone number?

I apologize for this request and would fully understand if you do not provide alternatives. I’m a Free Software vegetarian[0], meaning I do not use proprietary software, even when they are awesome. Very much like a vegetarian would not eat meat, even when it is delicious :slight_smile: It is an ethical and personal choice I made years ago and it sometimes causes problems.

If there is no way to join the meeting other than Google Meet, I could watch the recording afterwards. It’s just an idea though: I’m trying to find all imaginable ways to participate without using proprietary software.

Thanks a lot for your understanding and I look forward to finding the best possible solution.

Dear DAPSI innovators of our second call,

Welcome to this mailing list for general communication purposes. All the contacts for the 15 projects and our consortium partners are in this distribution list.

To open this channel, I will share with you an interesting event happening next week in the context of the NGI initiative and where some of our projects from Round 1 will participate. The details below:

The NGI Forum 2021 is already next week, and you are specially invited to join the one-hour session called How to make data portability go mainstream?

As you know, the right to data portability was considered one of the most important novelties within the EU General Data Protection Regulation. An opportunity to give the power of personal data back to people’s hand and fuel competition. But users still demand more practicality associated with the rules. Five experts and innovators from DAPSI will discuss how data portability can go mainstream.


  • Michiel de Jong (Ponder Source) (DAPSI’s Advisory Board Member)


  • Alejandro Russo (Dpella project)
  • Tom Haegemans (UI-Transfer project)
  • Hans-Joerg (OpenXPort project)
  • Mehdi Medjaoui (ALIAS project)


Please make sure you share this information with all your team members and with everyone you think might be interested.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Microsoft 365 Work Brilliantly Together

Welcome to the DAPSI_Round2_Phase1 group

How to participate

As a guest, you’re invited to take part in group conversations, share the latest ideas saved in the group files and notebook, and manage group tasks.

Email the group

For easy access, add DAPSI_Round2_Phase1@zabalacorp.onmicrosoft.com to your contacts and save this message in your inbox so you can refer back to it.

Go to SharePoint

Discover documents and photos shared by group members in the dedicated site.

Go to the shared notebook

Read and add to the latest notes from group members.

I hope participating via email will be good enough. Otherwise I’ll kindly ask someone to send me the documents that are published in a space that would require using a proprietary service to access.

Today 24,800€ were received by my from DAPSI. I wired 50% (i.e. 12,400€) to Libregerbil.

I did not receive a reply and was therefore not able to attend the May 13th, 2021 webinar.

Note that this videoconference required a google account :disappointed:. @misc pointed to me that non-Google account holders can only join an existing meeting created from a G Suite user, not a free user.

Here are my notes about the [DAPSI] Application Infrastructure and Support Tools (Webinar) meeting:

  • I updated the Application Infrastructure and Support Tools - Attendees List adding my name.
  • some infrastructure (by default: 2VMs, 4Go, 1public IP) is provided for free via Fiware lab, which is a Cloud infrastructure based on OpenStack (15 nodes spread all around europe and rest and the world). We could request a quota increase. This infrastructure will be provided during all the DAPSI project. Using this cloud provider is recommended but not mandatory. I shared the OpenStack credentials with @dachary. During this webinar, I created a virtual machine using the Horizon web interface and connected to this host using SSH.
  • Accounts to a redmine instance will be provided.
  • https://docs.dapsi.ngi.eu is a technical knowledgebase (docker, fiware, redmine …). There is a publications section, it is recommended to share (public or private) materials here.

The recording of this meeting will be available on Youtube.

Un petit mail en français…

J’espère que cet email vous trouvera en bonne santé.

Comme vous le savez déjà, pendant le programme DAPSI, nous vous proposons un accompagnement individuel avec un mentor dédié.

Votre mentor sera redacted qui travaille dans l’équipe d’IMT Starter.

Trois sessions de 2h chacune sont prévues le :

le 26 mai
le 16 juin
le 2 juillet

Je vous laisse gérer les créneaux horaires de ces journées. Si pour une raison particulière vous n’étiez pas disponible, merci d’organiser votre réunion autour de ces jours.

Je vous souhaite une discussion très constructive.

And I replied:


Enchanté de faire votre connaissance :slight_smile: De notre coté (et sous contrôle de Pierre-Louis en copie), nous sommes disponibles à l’heure de votre convenance durant les trois jours proposés.

Si cela vous convient, je propose que nous nous retrouvions sur le salon de visioconférence suivant:



I forgot the affinity mapping 26 May in the afternoon :scream: Thanks @pilou for the reminder! Just sent the followup:


Pierre-Louis me fait remarquer que nous avons pris un engagement le 26 mai dans l’après midi, nous avons donc une contrainte horaire ce jour la. Mais nous sommes disponibles en matinée.


Reply from the mentor today:

Bonsoir Loïc et merci de votre réaction rapide.

Pour ma part j’avais noté le RdV du 26 mai pour le matin, donc ce devrait répondre à vos contraintes.

Bonne fin de semaine,



Permettez-moi de vous proposer de repositionner la réunion du 2 juillet à la semaine suivante, car je serai finalement en congés.

Je vous propose donc 7 au matin ou le 8 matin (ou après-midi) : quelle est votre préférence ?

Merci d’avance et bonne fin de semaine,

I am not available from the 7 to the 15 July included. I am available the previous week.

We probably don’t need to be together on that occasion. I replied:


Pas de soucis pour décaler le 7 au matin. C’est noté.
