IMPULSE

SHORT DESCRIPTION

  • ACRONYM: IMPULSE.
  • TITLE: Identity Management in PUbLic Services.
  • SUMMARY: IMPULSE focuses on the multidimensional and user-centric analysis of the transformative impact of two disruptive technologies (Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence) on electronic identities (eID) for the improvement of digital public services. 

ABSTRACT

IMPULSE will conduct a user-centric and multidisciplinary impact analysis on the integration Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence (AI) on eID in public services, evaluating benefits but also risks, costs and limitations, considering socio-economic, legal, ethical and operational impacts, together with framework conditions (like GDPR and eIDAS regulations, existing eID systems, and standards). 

IMPULSE will use a demand-driven co-creation process as the guide, including pilot-oriented operational experimentation and involving Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs). A set of 6 representative and innovative case studies in Denmark, Spain, Bulgaria, Iceland and Italy, led by a public service partner, will provide a variety of cultural, operational, legal, procedural and social contexts for research.  

Two major outcomes will be produced: 

1) Holistic AI and blockchain technology supporting GDPR-compliant eID to complement existing EU identity schemas, ensuring cross-border access and secure and adaptable requirements for actionable integration/adoption. 

2) Actionable roadmaps (detailing pathways and good practices) for the adoption, escalation and sustainability of such advanced eID technologies by public services in the EU ecosystem. 

TREE’s contributions will address the technology research and developments, especially regarding the online verification of digitized documents and their integration into eID pipeline. TREE will also support the coordinator in management tasks.
