STORK project participates in CeBIT 2012 Exhibition

6th - 10th March 2012 in Hannover, Germany

Brussels, Belgium, 23 February 2012 - STORK (Secure Identity Across Borders Linked), the innovative project which has established EU-wide interoperability of electronic identities (eIDs), will participate in CeBIT 2012, the digital industry’s major event, which will take place on March 6th - 10th in Hannover, Germany.

All five EU co-funded Large Scale Pilots (LSPs) for effective online public services - namely STORK, SPOCS, PEPPOL, epSOS, eCODEX- will be present at the CeBIT 2012 in Hannover in Exhibition Hall 7 - Public Sector Parc and visitors can visit them at Booth B57. All LSPs are focusing on the needs of citizens and businesses developing concrete ICT solutions for rolling out cross-border eGovernment services and making life easier through better access to more efficient and cost effective public services. Effective interaction between public administrations, citizens and businesses is essential to build the digital society. CeBIT is one of the biggest events globally for the digital technologies, latest industry trends showcasing digital IT and telecommunications solutions and LSPs as key enablers for the Digital Single Market will be there to demonstrate the solutions that they offer.

In particular, STORK, a project co-funded by the EU ICT Policy Support Programme under the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) was officially launched in June 2008. Building on the existing national electronic public services, the STORK project extends current national services to a new level by making them more easily accessible across borders through the electronic identity (eID). STORK has implemented a European Electronic Identity (eID) Interoperability Platform allowing citizens to use their national electronic identities to access public eGovernment services in other Member States, in full respect of data protection and privacy rules.

STORK allows citizens to access eGovernment services securely, effectively and quickly in any Member State they live in, move to or temporarily reside by using the electronic identification systems provided by their home countries. Cross-border user authentication for such eRelations has been applied and tested by means of the six STORK pilot applications (Cross border authentication platform for electronic services, SaferChat, Student Mobility, Electronic Delivery, Change of Address, ECAS Integration) that use existing government services in EU Member States. Two pilots will be demonstrated live during the CeBIT 2012 Exhibition days and visitors will have the opportunity to get informed about STORK and the pilot services.

You are invited to visit the LSPs booths, get informed about these ICT solutions, discuss with the LSP representatives and experience the live demonstrations!
