SRCE hosts the EDSSI 2 project consortium meeting

EDSSI 2 logoOn 6th and 7th of October, a series of EDSSI 2 project activity meetings are being held in Zagreb at the SRCE premises, where the participants discuss the activities achieved and further steps in the implementation of the project. At the very beginning of the event, the director of SRCE, Ivan Marić, welcomed the participants.

The EDSSI L2 project builds on the work initiated by the European Digital Student Service Infrastructure (EDSSI) project, funded under a previous CEF call. The EDSSI project is developing the EU Student eCard core service platform by consolidating and integrating a range of ongoing initiatives. The platform is delivering an integrated authentication and authorisation infrastructure that brings together citizens identities (eID/eIDAS) and higher education identities (eduGAIN) to create an interoperable infrastructure serving as a gateway to European/national/local nodes to exchange academic data and to access services. The technical infrastructure for this will be a further development of the standardised and open-source NFC interface delivered by the ongoing EDSSI project. This will be combined with an eIDAS based authentication module and a standardised eCard management solution for HEIs which are not equipped with card management systems.

This open-source technical infrastructure will be tightly integrated, compliant with the highest level of security and based on the EU General Data Protection Regulations. The coordinator of the EDSSI 2 project is the Humboldt University in Berlin, and SRCE, as a partner in the project, is leading the activities of testing the new functionalities of the platform that will enable the establishment of a virtual student card.
