Trust in Digital Life (TDL)
The TDL Association’s unifying principle is that trust and trustworthy services are essential for the success of the digital economy in Europe. As a community of industrialists, entrepreneurs, and academics, TDL’s objective is to provide the tools and awareness to benefit the wider community in their daily digital lives. Therefore, TDL is committed to enabling a trustworthy ecosystem that both protects the rights of citizens – who deserve the best possible products and services – and creates opportunities for businesses to develop new and protective devices, applications, and services, provided at an affordable price. To this end, TDL researches, pilots, and incubates trustworthy ICT services and technologies in an innovative environment through collaborative activities. The research and business agenda of the European Union is also a major focus for TDL. TDL is a not-for-profit membership association registered in Belgium. Its member organisations are leading large companies (such as IBM Zurich, Intel, Microsoft, NEC Laboratories Europe), SMEs (such as Cryptas, The ID Co., Krowdthink, Trustseed, Truxtun Capital) and knowledge institutes (including the Alexandra Institute, Deutsche Telekom/Goethe University, KU Leuven, University of Murcia and the University of Twente). Via TDL, their representatives exchange knowledge and experience, share customer, technology, and market insights, all working to improve the trustworthiness of digital services and platforms through joint research, education, and development.
