IMPULSE “Identity Management in PUbLic Services” will conduct a user-centric and multidisciplinary impact analysis on the integration Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence (AI) on eID in public services, evaluating benefits but also risks, costs and limitations, considering socio-economic, legal, ethical and operational impacts, together with framework conditions (like GDPR and eIDAS regulations, existing eID systems, and standards).
IMPULSE will use a demand-driven co-creation process as the guide, including pilot-oriented operational experimentation and involving Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs). A set of 6 representative and innovative case studies in Denmark, Spain, Bulgaria, Iceland and Italy, led by a public service partner, will provide a variety of cultural, operational, legal, procedural and social contexts for research.
Two major outcomes will be produced:
- Holistic AI and blockchain technology supporting GDPR-compliant eID to complement existing EU identity schemas, ensuring cross-border access and secure and adaptable requirements for actionable integration/adoption.
- Actionable roadmaps (detailing pathways and good practices) for the adoption, escalation and sustainability of such advanced eID technologies by public services in the EU ecosystem.
