Academia (i.e. PhD projects, master thesis) and the private sector (i.e., GovTech startups) are also eligible if there is a clear collaboration with a public administration (local, regional, national). In any case, the application needs to be submitted by the European public administration.
No, the BDTI is for all public sector information.
By filling in the template request which can be found in the 'apply for BDTI' section and sending it to EC-BDTI-PILOTSec [dot] europa [dot] eu (EC-BDTI-PILOTS[at]ec[dot]europa[dot]eu)

Following the six months pilot project, our team assists you with an EXIT package to move to your own production environment.
BDTI operates in a secure cloud environment, complying with most frequently applicable security standards. However, if your organization applies specific security standards, these must be communicated to and discussed with the BDTI team.
The following languages are supported by BDTI:
Users are given root access and can create multiple users on the environment to work in parallel.
Code can be run directly in the cloud. Getting code inside the environment can be done by manually copying and pasting it using SFTP or by using a version control program such as Git.
The user is granted root access to the resources, so that any additional software modules or data sources that are required can be added. However, increasing computational resources due to an increase in data have to be requested to the BDTI Technical Team. Adding extra resources is done under the user's full responsibility. BDTI cannot guarantee support for packages added by the users.
After the end of the agreed time window, the code will no longer run. After the Exit phase of the project, the BDTI will provide the User with a template on how to implement the solution, to deploy in their own environment.
