The Open Insurance Initiative in Germany

Free Insurance Data Initiative

The addition to existing "data exchange formats" such as BiPRO and GDV

We create the basis for the emergence of digital ecosystems - in the spirit of "Open Insurance".

The aim of FRIDA e.V. is to develop standardized interfaces and to offer them directly not only to insurers, but also to third-party providers and customers - similar to what is already possible in open banking or in the context of PSD2.
Strong partners from the insurance sector, the open source approach and last but not least the non-profit idea of the FRIDA initiative should ensure that the API solutions establish themselves as an industry-wide standard. This makes digital ecosystems scalable and efficient, including insurance-specific data and services.

FRIDA promotes and establishes open standards in digital insurance and related business areas.

FRIDA relies on structured cooperation between insurers and policyholders as well as other players in digital ecosystems. FRIDA enables easy and secure access to insurance data - where it makes sense and is advantageous for the insured.

FRIDA supports insurers and their partners in the digitization process through customer-centric use cases and motivates all market participants to cooperate transparently.

    Become part of the community

    We create new interfaces and processes using existing standards and taking IT security and data protection into account

    FRIDA derives use cases from the perspective of end customers. In doing so, we ask which insurance data and processes are relevant for end customers.

    FRIDA is aimed at insurers (goal of uniform and structured data exchange) and third-party providers (goal of data interoperability for innovative use cases)

    Agile teams await you at FRIDA, who drive topics related to open insurance and open finance with a high degree of personal responsibility. The spectrum of tasks ranges from classic PMO and creative use case development to technical deep dives and the development of APIs. As a non-profit organization, we depend on the initiative of each individual!
