Electronic ID interoperability meeting to be held in Malmo

STORK Industry Group : 03 November, 2009  (Company News)
EU Funded eID scheme to hold member states reference group meeting in the Swedish city of Malmo during November
STORK, a pilot scheme co-funded by the EU that aims to implement EU-wide interoperability of electronic identities (eIDs), has announced that the second Member States Reference Group meeting will be held on Wednesday 18th November 2009, at the Hilton Malmo City, Malmo, Sweden. The meeting will be an important opportunity for EU representatives to learn more about the current status of the STORK pilot projects across Europe, as well as other Member States' incumbent national eID programmes.

Launched in 2008, STORK (Secure idenTity acrOss boRders linKed) is a three-year pan-EU initiative aiming to enable businesses, citizens and government employees to use their national electronic identities (eID) in any Member State. Such a system will simplify administrative formalities by providing secure online access to public services across EU borders.

The STORK Member States Reference Group is an open forum for government eID authorities, now open to any EU Member State, MS national authority, EEA Member State, EU candidate state and potential EU candidate state, who are not already part of the project. It aims to fully inform and keep members abreast of project developments, as well as collect feedback for the STORK Consortium. The meeting in Malmö will feature speeches from key STORK representatives with topics including STORK Enlargement and Legal and Technical specifications.

Co-Chairman of STORK, Arvid Welin comments, "STORK currently has 14 Member States and plans to extend that participation in 2010 with additional partners. This is impressive, but we want to make sure that our results are discussed and accepted beyond the project team so regular meetings are crucial. STORK has also achieved a major milestone recently in completing our Common Specifications. This means that our members all agreed to an interoperability framework for eID; this is a breakthrough to get the pilot projects up and running in 2010 as planned."

STORK is currently supported by the European Commission (Competitiveness and Innovation Programme) and 14 EU Member States: Austria, Belgium, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, the UK and Iceland (as an EEA member).

The Member States Reference Group meeting will be held during the pre-conference for the 5th Ministerial eGovernment Meeting and Conference 2009. The pre-conference will demonstrate potential and actual uses of eGovernment research and innovation to high-level EU officials.
