Open export of data across different systems and providers
With its Article 20, the EU GDPR has codified a “Right to data portability”, which aims to reduce user’s “lock-in” with a service provider and to increase the freedom to move to another provider.
audriga, the company behind OpenXPort, was founded in 2011 with the vision of empowering email users to keep their data when switching to another service provider. As a pioneer in data portability, audriga is well aware of its many pitfalls, gaps, and challenges.
OpenXPort is based on the JMAP family of standards. Main efforts are to create and extend JMAP software libraries and JMAP API plugins for popular Open Source systems to improve data portability.

The project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 871498.
Under the European Commission’s Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative, the Data Portability and Services Incubator (DAPSI) was launched in November 2019, to empower top internet innovators to develop human-centric technology solutions addressing the challenge of personal data portability on the internet as foreseen under the GDPR.
