About this event

This workshop has two parts. A webinar with short presentations (60 min) and a general discussion on Big Blue Button for participants in to contribute (60 min).

11:00 - 11:05 Opening, Loretta Anania, European Commission

11:05 - 11:10 Primavera de Filippi, CNRS, 'Self-Sovereign Identity in a Globalized World: Credentials-Based Identity Systems as a Driver for Economic Inclusion'.  How combining blockchain-based cryptocurrencies and SSI contributes to promoting privacy as well as greater economic inclusion.


11:15 - 11:20 Daniel Du Seuil, Convenor of the European Self Sovereign Identity Framework within the European Blockchain Partnership. This partnership of 30 EU member states and related countries cooperate in the establishment of an interoperable infrastructure (EBSI) that supports the delivery of cross-border digital public services, with highest standards of security and privacy.


11:20 - 11:25 Irene Hernandez, Founder and CEO of Gataca (ESSIF Lab subproject)

Gataca has built three components to connect q more secure digital ID ecosystem. Aims to help issuers transform their CREDENTIALS into IDENTITY wallets in the customers' mobile phones. This will connect and access a range of digital services, from e-government to car sharing.


11:25 - 11:30 Caspar Roelofs, Founder of Gimly Blockchain Project (ESSIF Lab subproject)

Gimly's focus is on self-sovereign identity and secure data exchange as pivotal building blocks for the future of internet, supply chain, finance, and health care.


11:30- 11:35 Michael Kubach, Team Identity Management at Fraunhofer IAO, TRAIN (ESSIF Lab subproject). The trust management architecture that TRAIN enables more secure, trustable digital interactions. At the same time a classical hierarchical CA-type structure is avoided – limiting fraud, chaos and the pure dominance of the economically strongest actors in the system.


11:35 - 11:40 Gordana Halavanja,  Co-founder of Co-operating.systems (NGI Trust subproject)

The world faces complex and interrelated issues that can only be addressed by real-time secure digital co-operation between diverse organisations. How can we enable effective co-operation between autonomous actors and institutions without sacrificing digital sovereignty? The answer is a new kind of open source/open standards platform, with a unique social enterprise driving its development.


11:45 - 11:50 Jaya Klara Brekke is Founding member of Magma Collective (NGI LEDGER project)

Dr Jaya Klara Brekke will speak on SSI in relation to two EC projects that I am part of: CoBox https://cobox.cloud and Nym https://nymtech.net/ (which also has EC roots through the Panoramix and DECODE projects).


11:50 - 11:55 We inventaris the remarks and questions in the chat.

11:55 - 12:00 Closing by Loretta Anania, invitation for all to join the discussion session on Big Blue Button.
