Technology Council


The main role of the OASC Technology Council is to ensure that already specified Minimal Interoperability Mechanisms (MIMs) remain relevant and can be effectively adopted and implemented by the OASC ecosystem and the wider market. The Council was established in 2020.

It is the Technology Council’s ambition to maintain the MIMs to support the sustainable development of open and interoperable digital platforms, based on further developing and expanding open standards and technical specifications, Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and shared data models. 

The purpose of the OASC Technology Council (TC) is threefold:

  1. To oversee the overall roadmap of the Minimal Interoperability Mechanisms.
  2. To support the technical development of existing MIMs and explores the technical possibilities for proposed MIMs.
  3. To provide the OASC network and its members with impartial technical advice and guidance on relevant technologies and standards that underpin the MIMs.

Technology Council – Working Groups

The Working Groups are formed around each Minimal Interoperability Mechanism – approved and proposed. Currently, five working groups are active, including additional experts when needed.

  • MIM1: Context Information Management
  • MIM2: Shared Data Models
  • MIM3: Business Transaction Ecosystem
  • MIM4: Personal Data Management
  • MIM5: Fair Artificial Intelligence
