Trustless Computing Association (TCA) is the outcome of 12 years of expertise in e-voting, e-participation, free software, and bleeding-edge privacy-enhancing technologies and solutions, through NGOs and SMEs, led and founded by founder and Executive Director, Rufo Guerreschi. Since then TCA has aggregated a world-class advisory boards, and partners with globally unique or rare expertises, most of which actively involved for years.
Trustless Computing Association (TCA) was was established in 2011 (with the name of Open Media Cluster) as the core innovation catalyst for the Open Media Park, a 47,000 sq.mts. and 150M€ media/ICT technology Park, which is planned to start construction in Rome, Italy, in 2017. The Park project was launched through a 2012 event, Open Media Forum, coordinated by the Open Media Cluster, with world-class partners and stakeholders of the Park and Cluster. By 2013, OMC gathered 13 world-leading R&D and industrial partners from the media/IT sectors to localize in a 5-6,000 sq.mts. innnovation center, and initiated large-scale disruptive R&D projects proposal centered on next generation open Web and cutting-edge IT privacy.
Since 2014, the local government, which controls the zoning approval process, has declared interest in more traditional audio-visual content production, and could not commit to making up for the large delays in the approval processes. Since then its R&D activities, and especially aimed at bleeding edge cybersecurity solutions project – initiated with some of the partners for the planned geolocated innovation center – have taken a life of its own and become the core project of OMC.
