The scope of the current deliverable is to outline the architecture and design of the data sources and gateways framework. This framework aims at enabling the acquisition of multimodal data from various data sources and various data source providers, solving current connectivity and communication issues. Towards this end, the current deliverable documents the architecture and design of the data gateway component and the envisioned abstracted API for all information sources handled within the context of the CrowdHEALTH project. It documents the initial version of the component design, as this has been formulated building upon the requirements collected from the pilot partners of the project, who also act as data providers, while it also provides the initial version of the component specifications. It should be noted at this point that the design and specifications of the data gateway component are subject to changes that will be documented in the second version of the current deliverable. More specifically, the current version will guide the implementation of the first version of the Data Gateway component software prototype, which in turn will be evaluated within the context of the project and enriched in order to meet additional end user requirements or just be refined in its second and final version. It should also be noted that the actual connection details to specific data source providers will not be disclosed in the public deliverables, since this information is considered private by the data providers.
