Dear reader,

STORK 2.0... the story continues!

Building on the success and results of STORK project, STORK 2.0 (Secure idenTity acrOss boRders linKed 2.0) goes a step further towards the creation of a single framework and infrastructure for cross-border electronic identification and authentication (eID) in the EU.

Launched in April 2012, this 3-year EU co-funded project will be a key-enabler to support the open, competitive digital economy envisaged in the Europe 2020 Strategy, thus contributing to Europe’s leadership in the field of eID and facilitating borderless digital living and mobility in the EU.

Involving 58 consortium partners in total from 19 EU Member States and Associated Countries, STORK 2.0 extends the STORK functionalities to cover authentication of physical persons with powers or mandated to represent legal persons and with the aim to address a better convergence of public and private sector e.g. supporting more attribute providers for secure exchange of extended attribute sets and defining new business models for eID as a Service.

Moreover, four pilots will run for 12 months from 2014, focusing on eLearning and Academic Qualifications, eBanking, Public Services for Business and eHealth to demonstrate the capabilities and benefits of interoperable eID in a real-world environment.

In this first issue of our newsletter, you will have the opportunity to read all project updates, upcoming events, news related to STORK 2.0 as well as interesting publications.

We will be glad to read your comments or suggestions you might have so contact us at: communication@eid-stork2.eu.
