The EUDI Wallet Consortium (EWC) is proud to announce that we have been selected by the European Commission to participate in the large scale pilots to ensure interoperability and adoption of the European Digital Identity Wallet.

Our pilot is focused on the use of the EU Digital Identity Wallet in the context of travel – such as providing passenger information, buying goods and services, and trusted business to business interactions. The pilot will focus on situations wich are central people’s online lives and identify barriers and enablers to adoption and scaling of the EUDI wallet. Furthermore, by including payments and organisational digital identity (“ODI”), the EWC ensures that the pilot evaluates scenarios which are relevant to citizens, business and governments such as secure ecommerce and business to business transactions.

With over 60 participants, from both private and public sector, EWC represents almost every country in the EU and EFTA plus Ukraine and is able to provide pan-European services and further the digital inner single market and beyond. EWC is led by Swedish and Finnish government authorities and supported by relevant industry experts from the travel and payment industry as well as a large number of technology partners with experience in digital identity, trust services, wallet applications and integration of these technologies into online services.
