eIDAS Observatory

Article
In order to exploit the full potential of the tools offered by the eIDAS Regulation and to benefit from a real digitisation across all sectors and beyond national borders, all interested parties should be involved: citizens, businesses and public administrations.

In this context, the Commission launches the eIDAS Observatory - an online collaborative platform for exchanging views and positions, sharing ideas and good practices. 

The Observatory is a virtual community of stakeholders whose aim is to build a common understanding of the issues relating to the implementation and uptake of the eIDAS Regulation and to facilitate the use of cross-border electronic identification and trust services. 

The Commission welcomes the involvement of a wide range of public and private sector participants who will use their experience, technical skills and knowledge to provide evidence-based and data-driven policy support for the EU. It encourages representation of various economic sectors, especially those where sector-specific legal and policy instruments foresee the need for electronic identification and/or trust services.

You can join the eIDAS Observatory and take part in the discussions.

At the ICT2015 Conference in Lisbon, the European Commission organised the "eIDAS Knowledge Café". The goal of this networking session was to learn how to best leverage eIDAS to create and innovate, with a particular focus on the electronic identification and the CEF eID building block.

Imagine yourself in 2018, where the use of electronic identification, electronic signatures and the other trust services is a daily reality and where citizens, companies and public administrations safely access services and can do every kind of transaction online and across borders in just "one click". Wow, do you think this is science fiction? It most definitely is not.

The third eIDAS high-level private sector event has left us with a clearer vision on what the needs of the private sector are. Trust, security and convenience were the key words throughout the day. The event was opened by Commissioner Oettinger and was attended by high representatives of the banking and the sharing economy sectors. It was interesting to understand how these participants from different backgrounds were agreeing on one thing: the need for trust.
