IHAN Blueprint

Sitra’s IHAN® project aims to build the foundation for a fair and functioning data economy. The Blueprint is used to implement the IHAN operating model in practice. The Blueprint will be further developed in technical workshops.


The main objectives of Sitra’s IHAN® project are to create a method for data exchange and to set up European level rules and guidelines for ethical use of data.

The Blueprint is our understanding of how components can be built according to IHAN requirements. The document contains detailed functional requierements for all IHAN ecosystem functional components in end user, service provider and data provider levels. It also contains all non-functional requirements for IHAN ecosystem.

The IHAN Blueprint 2.5 will be further developed in technical workshops and the newest version can be found from this website. This version was published on 22 January 2020.
