The POTENTIAL Consortium is building and testing digital ID prototypes for new applications in EU’s European digital wallet. The concentration will be to test integrations for digital drivers’ licenses, medical prescriptions, e-government services, SIM registration, account login, remote electronic signature.

This follows a cross-payments pilot for the EU’s wallet led by the NOBID Consortium which invested in facilitating instant secure transactions and interoperable infrastructure.

Identity Week Europe Gold sponsor, IDEMIA is joining the POTENTIAL Consortium which comprises of 148 members representing 19 European countries.

Various Consortiums have undertaken digital ID projects aligned with the EU’s single digital wallet which is due to launch in 2024. The DC4EU – exploring a set of applications for career credentials – will benefit both applicants and employers who require a secure means of verifying career records and submiting resumes.

The wallet is a fusion of digital ID and other e-credentials that service consumerism in numerous sectors.

EWC Consortium’s proposal to test the EU wallet in the context of travel ID credentials for the users and business-to-business was accepted by the European Commission.
