October 2015: Partisia is one of the partners behind the new project “Big Data by Security” funded by the Danish Industry Foundation with approx. 7,6 million DDK. The project will illustrate how Secure Multiparty Computation can become an infrastructure for sensitive data in a Big Data context. The project focuses on two cases: One on credit rating and one on accessing sensitive data from Danish Statistics in an all new way.
September 2015: hosted the 21th energy conference on liberalising the energy market “Det Frie Energimarked 2015” (in Danish).
April 2015: Together with Cybernetica (a R&D ICT company), Partisia has developed a secure survey system within the EU project PRACTICE. The secure multiparty computation based survey system ensures that the submitted answers are kept encrypted at all time. Also, the software architecture has been designed to allowing the very same web service (the survey) to run on two different systems to secure multiparty computation. The first real-life survey has been conducted.
April 2015: Chief cryptographer and Partner in Partisia, Ivan Damgård, has been awarded the RSA award “Excellence in the Field of Mathematics” for his work on cryptographic hash functions and Secure Multiparty Computation.

Juli 2013: Partisia has been granted 2 million DKK as part of the EU FP7 project PRACTICE. PRACTICE is a large scale European R&D project that brings together 17 universities and it-companies around Privacy-Preserving Computation in the Cloud. Partisia will focus on collaborative systems based on Secure Multiparty Computation such as auctions and benchmarking systems. The Project starts in November 2013 and will run for 3 years.

November 2012: Partisia has developed and operated the Norwegian 2 GHz spectrum auction for the Norwegian Postal and Telecommunications authority ( The auction was held on 19 November and the design, development and operation has been done in coorperation with Copenhagen Economics and Professor Nils-Henrik M von der Fehr.

August 2012: In coorperation with Copenhagen Economics and Professor Nils-Henrik M von der Fehr, Partisia has been awarded a framework agreement by the Norwegian Post and Telecommunication Authority ( The framework agreement is on auction consulting services in future spectrum auctions held by NPT.

June 2012: Partisia launch the Auction-as-a-Service solution "Power Procurement" at "PowerProcurement" is a simple and cost efficient procurement solution designed for the electricity market and small and medium sized enterprises in particular. The solution covers the entire process from collecting consumption data to issuing the final contract at the buyer's accept of the best bid.

March 2012: The Danish it newspaper "Version2" interview Partner and CTO at Partisia, Jakob Illeborg Pagter about the technology behind (in Danish only).
June 2011: Partisia goes live with a secure auction solution for trading "energy saving projects" at The solution covers the entire process from defining the energy project to issuing the final contract at the seller's accept of the best bid. The solution as a whole as well as the imbedded sealed bid auction runs on cloud computing without compromising the security. This is possible with our innovative technology that allows the sealed bids to remain encrypted forever.
September 2010: In coorperation with Copenhagen Economics and Professor Nils-Henrik M von der Fehr, Partisia has been awarded a framework agreement by the Swedish Post and Telecom Agency ( The framework agreement is on auction consulting services in future spectrum auctions held by PTS.

August 2010: Partisia has teamed up with energy specialist, Norenergi, to provide auction solutions for confidential online trading of energy related products based on Partisias unique technology.

April 2010: Partner and Chief Cryptographer at Partisia, professor of cryptography at Aarhus University, Ivan Damgård, has been selected as a fellow of the IACR (International Association for Cryptologic Research). This distinction recognises people who have made outstanding contributions to research in cryptology and related fields.
