First demo of the IMPULSE eID solution

The IMPULSE consortium has recently arranged a plenary meeting to present and discuss about the first demonstrator of the IMPULSE eID solution. The session was led by GRADIANT and showed the steps that a user should follow for the onboarding process and, once registered, to get access to one of the public services.


Our colleagues from Ertzaintza has participated in SICUR – the Spain’s leading international security event that brings together public and private security companies, associations, professionals every two years in Madrid.

Gijón will improve the electronic identification for more than 325,000 people who use its services with the Citizen Card

With the purpose of continuing to improve, Gijón – together with 16 European organisations in the framework of the IMPULSE project – will test the incorporation of Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence technologies for the identification of its citizens in public services in a safe, simple, universal, integrated way, with privacy at the core.

Expectations and opportunities for collaboration with (European) Digital Innovation Hubs in the IMPULSE project

“Modernising public administrations and services through digital means is crucial to reducing administrative burden on the private sector and on citizens in general by making their interactions with public authorities faster, more convenient and less costly, as well as by increasing the efficiency and the quality of the services provided to citizens and businesses” (European Digital Innovation Hubs in Digital Europe Programme).

Twinning with DIH-World

Earlier this month, as a representative of the IMPULSE project, Bertille Auvray from Pôle TES joined the Steering Committee of DIH-World.

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.

NEW! IMPULSE brochure and trifold available

Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) schemes and the public sector

Electronic Identity (eID) solutions in the public sector have often suffered from low adoption, in turn retarding the development of e-government. An important question is whether SSI-style eID solutions can help to break this cycle.
