The MAGPIE Initiative is a partnership among European leaders in the personal information management and privacy innovation space. Its mission is to advance the state-of-the-art in scalability and operational efficiency of personal data management by researching, developing, and promoting a novel, inclusive, decentralized ecosystem for interoperable personal data tools and software. The MAGPIE Ecosystem will enable personal users to exercise their right to data portability and decide for themselves which tools or service providers they wish to trust to manage their personal data – and enable organizations to interact efficiently with users of a wide variety of such tools and services.

The partnership currently consists of ten organizations, plus many supporters and advisors. The core partners are:
National Land Survey (NLS) of Finland, Vienna University of Economics and Business, Peercraft, Kantara Initiative Europe, Mydex CIC, Innopay, Open Identity Exchange, Indoo.rs, IndoorAtlas, Time.lex.

The MAGPIE Initiative is aligned with the principles of the MyData Declaration.
