HELIOS is a 3-year Research and Innovation Action (RIA) project funded by the European Commission as part of its H2020 Programme, targeting the Topic “Future Hyper-Connected Sociality” and working on the development of a decentralized social media platform. The platform will offer several functionalities and address the dynamic nature of human communication and interactions in three dimensions: contextual, spatial and temporal.

The mission of HELIOS is to provide people with technology to empower meaningful relationships through a Social Network Platform, that allow them to build and evolve relationships in the same way they can do it in the real-physical context, while providing them full control of their data with advanced trust and privacy features.

The project has the ambition to become a disruptive force in the European Social Media landscape by laying and redefining the foundation for a new Social Network vision grounded on transparency and verification.
