What eIDAS 2.0 is and how it differs from eIDAS 1.0, the opportunities with Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and eReceipts, public and private sector involvement, what the world can learn from the Nordics for projects like eIDAS and GAIN; and how smaller players can influence the Commission’s decisions.


MyData is a human-centric approach to personal data management, which combines industry need for data with digital human rights.

MyData is an alternative vision which offers guiding technical principles for how we, as individuals, can have more control over the data trails we leave behind in our everyday actions. The core idea is that we should have an easier way to see where our personal data goes, specify who can use it, and alter these decisions over time.
