Heliosphere is born out of the need to understand, gather and structure the citizen’s expectations towards Social Media to influence the development of future social media platforms

This initiative has been inspired by the EU-funded project HELIOS, developing a decentralized social media platform with a trustworthy solution enabling the democratization of content production, promotion, and monetization. The collaborative project between 15 universities and partner companies across Europe is part of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Programme, under the topic of “Future Hyper-connected Society and Support of new Social Media initiative”.


The content and information gathered by Heliosphere is going to be used as input for the design and development of HELIOS.
