Scoping the Single European Digital Identity Community

Project description

ICT for improved services for citizens and businesses

The objective of this network will be to provide a platform for all the stakeholders of eID (electronic identity) to work together and collaborate to prepare the agenda for a proposed Single European Digital Identity Community. The network will identify the actions and the timetable for the Digital Agenda (DAE) and the successful launch of the European Large Scale Action (ELSA), as well as to provide a multi stakeholder planning resource to assist its implementation.The Thematic Network will establish a series of stakeholder groups in sectors as outlined in the ELSA/EIP/DAE report, holding the Key Actions on eID and Authentication. Each of the groups will consider, through further consultations the political, economic, social, technical, legal and environmental aspects of a single European digital community. The 35 partner stakeholders and the initial additional associated partners we present here (who have strongly expressed interest in participating) are only the start of this stakeholders' network. The ambition of this network is to build a community of high level European and international experts in the coming 3 years. This community will be built via virtual tools: the dedicated online workspace, online conferences etc as well as via real live events integrated in the EEMA conference agenda and other major European Commission events.The Thematic Network is not intended to be an academic exercise, it is an action plan with a roadmap for the Digital Agenda for the coming decade. As such, the results of the Thematic Network need to reflect a transformational shift in the way everyone in the European community will think, behave, transact and indeed live in the coming years. The vision to be established by the Network can be a beacon to the rest of the world, demonstrating how the efficiency of a digital community can be translated into cultural and economic leadership.
