European citizens are becoming increasingly mobile, and upcoming opportunities are growing for students and citizens alike.

One major issue in helping mobility is decreasing the administrative burden linked to moving; how can a citizen easily carry over his personal information from one administration to another?  How can a student provide access to his course curricula and results to a new university? But as importantly, how can the citizens and the students retain full control over what information is provided and to whom? How can support be provided to exchange information on a “need to know” basis across Europe?

SEMIRAMIS - Secure Management of Information across Multiple Stakeholders - has successfully developed and deployed a flexible and efficient solution for a secure exchange of administrative documents and personal information between universities, telecommunication operators, solution providers and public administrations.

All these players joined forces in the SEMIRAMIS Project that started in March 2010. SEMIRAMIS closed in December 2012; during its lifetime, the project developed a complete infrastructure, deployed it across Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal and Spain and involved over 300 users actively testing the services provided.

The SEMIRAMIS architecture is fully operational and its core components and libraries are available online as open source under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). SEMIRAMIS results have also been transferred to the STORK 2.0 project focused on delivering the European eID Interoperability Platform.
