STORK Reveals How It Has Made The EU One Step Closer
To A Digital Single Market

5th Industry Group Meeting
Wednesday 16th November 2011 in Poland

Brussels, Belgium, 2nd November 2011 – 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. It offers an interoperable and sustainable eID authentication platform, enabling easier access to online public services across borders for citizens in EU Member States. 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.

Attendees of the meeting will be provided with an update on the achievements of the six STORK pilot projects and presented with demonstrations of three live pilots - Change of Address, Student Mobility and ECAS Integration – that facilitate cross-border eID services. They will also learn about examples of implementations beyond pilots that demonstrate the reliability and sustainability of the STORK solution in to the future.

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".
