Members and Chapters – if you live in Europe, The Internet Society Belgium Chapter needs you to take part in a critical survey on Single European Digital Identity.
“We’ll need colleagues in Chapter offices to participate in this survey as national or regional experts,” says Rudi Vansnick, President of the Internet Society Belgium Chapter. “As experts, they’ll also receive the results of the survey.”
Scoping the Single European Digital Identity Community (SSEDIC) is a thematic network for the EC’s Digital Agenda for Europe. The Internet Society Belgium Chapter is a key partner in the network and has been working to help further its mission of uniting the EU in a flourishing digital economy by 2020, outlining policies and actions to maximise the benefits for all Member States.
Today, many barriers still affect the vision of a Single Digital Community in the EU. The interoperability challenges faced by national eIDs – the way citizens, government and businesses can identify themselves securely online – means that access to many EU public services, markets and other transactions are not possible between Member States, forcing people to look outside the EU. A Single Digital Community will be a major transformational impetus to further enhance the economic strength and political cohesion of European society, as the next logical step from the achievements of the Single Market.
To achieve these goals in its three-year timeline, the EC is working closely with 35 partner stakeholders from across the EU.
Individual registration for the survey will be required and organized by The Internet Society Belgium Chapter, so watch www.internetsociety.org for updates.
