Co-creating sustainable eID solutions

Implementing new electronic identity (eID) solutions for the public sector is a tough endeavour.  Public officers, technical teams, and researchers need to work together in order to solve several fundamental concerns of end users. Co-creation is a suitable approach to design solutions that respond better to those concerns, but it is far from being a “silver bullet”: There are further challenges that should be addressed to make a sustainable impact in the long term.
