The POTENTIAL Consortium selected by the European Commission to pursue its journey to digital European identity
On 14/12/2022, the European Commission announced the results of the LSP on the European Digital identity Wallet. The POTENTIAL Consortium is thrilled to share that its proposal, submitted in August 2022, has been selected by the European Commission.
148 participants from 19 EU member states and Ukraine gather in the POTENTIAL Consortium to pilot new coming EU Digital Identity Wallet (EUDIW) prototypes in six Use Cases (“Electronic Government services”, “Account opening”, “SIM registration”, “Mobile Driving License”, “Remote Qualified Electronic Signature”, And “Electronic Prescription”). The POTENTIAL consortium renews its commitment to implementing these pilots with ambition and determination. Intesa, a Kyndryl Company is pleased to have joined its efforts to the European project carried by POTENTIAL.
We are proud that Intesa has been selected for this important role, both at a national and international level, within the most representative European Consortium and we are glad that our effort has been positively evaluated by the European Commission. From now on we must work effectively with the other partners, in order to show that the Wallet can be a useful and efficient tool and it can be part of all citizen’s day to day life and ease it.Giuseppe Mariani
All POTENTIAL participants are glad to be entrusted by the European Commission to build such pioneering Use Cases for cross-border testing of the digital European Identity. The POTENTIAL Consortium is now ready to engage into a round of negotiations with GD CONNECT which will be concluded by the signature of the Grant Agreement (GA) and the launch of the project, estimated at the beginning of May 2023.
