STORK Reveals How It Has Made The EU One Step Closer To A Digital Single
STORK (Secure Identity Across Borders Linked), the innovative project
which has established EU-wide interoperability of electronic identities
(eIDs), invites stakeholders to its 5th and final Industry Group Meeting
in Poznan, Poland on Wednesday 16th November 2011, to learn how the
project has made the EU one step closer to the digital single market.
STORK, a project co-funded by the EU ICT Policy Support Programme under
the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) was
officially launched in May 2008. The objective was to develop and test
common specifications for mutual recognition of national electronic
identity (eID) between the STORK participating countries and achieve
their acceptance in many different pioneer applications (pilot
experiences). The project is scheduled to finish in December 2011 and at
this meeting the STORK solution to this challenge and its long-term
benefits to industry will be revealed.
STORK WP7 "Communication and Sustainability" Leader and Executive
Director of Gov2u, Vasilis Koulolias states: "The STORK project has
successfully united 18 countries and a total of 35 consortium partners
from across the public and private sector in its goal to creating a
truly interoperable, reliable and sustainable solution for the
cross-border use of national electronic identities." He adds: "At this
5th STORK Industry Group meeting it is important all industry
stakeholders to attend and learn about the progress the STORK project
has made in achieving a sustainable, robust, transparent, safe to us and
scalable solution to bring the EU one step closer to a digital single
market as the EU Digital Agenda mentions".

How does this match up with the new Cabinet Office project? (In 2008 DWP
was running our sub-project - it was reported at the 14th Porvoo
conference in Cardiff).
