The EU Digital Wallet Consortium (EWC) is a joint effort to successfully leverage the benefits of the proposed EU digital identity in the form of Digital Travel Credentials across the Member States. The EWC intends to build on the Reference Wallet Application to enable a use case focused on Digital Travel Credentials.
We expect this use case to necessitate the use of multiple Electronic Attestation of Attributes and Credentials as well as the involvement of both the private sector and the public sector.
The EWC consists of representatives of all 27 Member States and
also includes partners from other countries. Such a wide representation provides a unique capacity to issue Person Identification Data (PID) for both natural persons and legal entities.
The first way the project aims to drive digital transformation is by improving citizens’ access to a trusted and secure electronic identity that safeguards privacy and affords users control over their identity data.
The second way the project aims to drive digital transformation is by supporting the digital transformation of the European industrial sector.
The EWC project will contribute directly to the EU-wide implementation of the reference Wallet, Digital Travel Credentials as a Use Case in particular and a range of expected impacts like Large scale pilots, which will be demonstrating the functionality of the Wallet in national and cross-border contexts.
