EU Updates, Skills-based marketplace and other nordic news
Hi ! 👋
Hope you have had a smashing easter vacation! ☀️🐣 And ready to start the spring with some fresh identity news!
EU wallet work
DIN has talked about EU wallets a while back. Now we are starting to see a lot of movements in the EU on this subject. They did promise us something by 2024. Thales has announced a report on what a wallet means for the user. Biometric updated talks about how this wallet race might play out. And EU/EBSI is coming out with conformant tests to make sure everything is working out together in an ecosystem. Read how that worked out for Validated.ID. ValidatedID are also coming to the DIF Interoperability group meeting the 20th of April
Skills-based talent marketplace
SSI can be used for many different reasons. A skill related market place is one of them. We have an upcoming event, the 5th of April with SIKT, who will talk about how they work with education credentials and the EU. JFF has also delivered a report on what this type of market place looks like, in relation to digital wallets.
