First national MyAcademicID workshop

First national MyAcademicID workshop

March 20, 2020

The first national workshop of MyAcademicID was organised online on March 18th with over 80 participants from higher education institutions and student services in virtual attendance.

The workshop allowed to introduce the outcomes of the project activities: enabling students to authenticate at transnational level using their student credentials from their home institutions or citizen credentials from their eIDAS node operator and to simplify administrative procedures for students by implementing a single student eID, coined the European Student Identifier.

Besides a strategic overview on the digitalisation perspectives by the German Academic Exchange Agency (DAAD), the workshop also allowed to present an initiative funded by the German federal ministry for higher education called “Platform for International Mobility“. The presentations were then complemented on how the European Student Card was introduced for the Campuscard Berlin.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the remaining workshops have been postponed until further notice. Visit the MyAcademicID website regularly for more information!
