European Education Connectivity Solution

Objective

The EECS project brings together three European SMEs and three academic researchers in order to develop a prototype campus card management system that will serve the unique needs and requirements of European Higher Education Institutions. EECS will recommend standards for campus card systems to the ISO and will build the prototype to the recommended standards in order to facilitate interoperability between campus card management systems across Europe. The EECS project will give the participating SMEs access to trans-European research and development, which will deliver an interoperable card management system. The consortium will work with the European Campus Card Association (ECCA) to develop the most appropriate solution for European campuses, based on the unique needs of Higher Education institutions. The EECS project will produce an integrated campus card solution, which will be exploited by the partner SMEs. This is a highly ambitious goal achievable through state of the art research and the careful partnering of Research and Technological Development (RTD) performers and SME partners. Typically, access to such research capability is confined to the multinational organizations. The EECS goals are, therefore, ideally suited to the Research for SMEs program. The core technological ambitions of the project are to: - Facilitate the interoperability of campus systems and basic functionalities, including the transfer of student information and access to a range of fundamental campus services for students. - Develop an information transmission interface that will translate information stored on one campus card into a common format based on European standards. - Facilitate the secure authentication of information transfer between educational institutions. The project aims to fulfill the main objectives of the Bologna Declaration by promoting mobility by overcoming obstacles to the effective exercise of free movement of students and academics.
