Projects are defined as small scale, low risk assessments, analysis or tests of interoperable components that address the key challenges of creating convenient, secure, and privacy-enhancing digital transactions. These projects target specific issues that have been identified by an organisation.

The process for running a project is clearly defined.  Projects are collaborative and funding is provided privately by the organisations involved (please also read the OIX Directed Funding policy). Projects will test solutions with representative users and be designed to be scalable.

John Timpson, Chairman for Timpson talks about why Timpson is interested in the digital identity eco system at the September 2015 Follow the Entrepreneur event.

Project ideas can be proposed by any organisation. Projects are collaboratively funded and sponsored/lead by OIX members. Please read the OIX UK Project Process.
