EUROPEAN CONFERENCE

Towards a European student eID - recent developments in the MyAcademicID Project


Wouldn’t it be nice? A trusted, digital student identity that allows for seamless access to a wide range of services as diverse as managing academic records, Erasmus mobility data, or the use of university or student services – and all this within a secure and reliable framework of digital ID management?
The MyAcademicID project knits together the unique digital identification of a European Student Card (ESC) with a secure authentication via the eduGAIN network. Linking local authentication with global access to services would allow students to smoothly navigate the digital world of cross-border and cross-institutional access to services.
First results of this EU-project have been presented at the conference on November 20-21, 2019 in Berlin.


The conference's been particularly interesting for the following audiences:

  • European Higher Education community such as HEI’s leadership, registrars, IT-services, international offices and services departments, rectors‘ conferences, EU networks of universities and similar;
  • students as multipliers that are interested in student mobility, in particular student unions, student representatives in HEI leadership or student services;
  • decision makers such as politicians, public bodies and agencies for higher education policy;
  • Student Service providers such as Studentenwerke, Cnous, Student Services Departments of HEIs and similar;
  • participants in other CEF-funded projects and projects related to student eID such as the European Student Card (ESC) project, Erasmus-Without-Papers, Emrex, ESMO/SEAL, Studies+, eID4U, Europass, Aducid, OpenU, Santander- Student Smart Card, etc.
