Building privacy & accessibility in education

The Next Generation Digital Identity for Learning (NGDIL) group is an EU based consortium of public and private entities with a focus on supporting technology research and development that supports key education-related access.

With a primary focus on self-sovereign identity and privacy preservation to foster interoperability within education and learning frameworks.


The NGDIL supports the progress of technology and standards that facilitate accessibility and interoperability in educational and learning systems. Working across borders to support the progression of standardised frameworks for academic institutions and vocational training to promote lifelong learning.

The NGDIL aims to conduct research, pilot programs, and the deployment of new technologies that can facilitate privacy preservation and enhanced trust through digital credential-based systems, that foster interoperability and cooperation between public and private entities.


Our vision is a world that has no borders to education.

A world in which access to education throughout any individuals life is available, and where the recognition, verification, and interoperability of learning qualifications and attestations is a simple and universal experience.

More about us

Built on values that can foster lifelong learning.

NGDIL promotes and supports the use of standardised technology that can provide inclusive & accessible learning with a focus on micro-credentials, verifiable credentials, and open badges, within all academic and vocational learning areas.


At our core we stand for providing equal opportunities to everyone, everywhere. Building towards a future where there are no barriers towards an individual's learning opportunities.


Learning and technology go hand in hand when it comes to being accessible and we stand to support a future where both the technology and learning are accessible to all.


We stand to advocate for interoperable standards and frameworks that allow the ease of use of Edtech without barriers, from industry to education, and country to continent.

Open Technology

Adoption requires open tools, and we strive to facilitate the open nature of the technology, providing individuals and organisations with easy access to the apps and tools required.

Lifelong Learning

Education and learning way beyond simply academic qualifications, and we encourage the development and support of learning in all its formal and informal shapes and sizes.

Privacy & Trust

Privacy is a fundamental human right, and we hold it front and centre of our discussions as we work towards the security and trust frameworks that can help shape the future of learning.
