Senior Development Architect at Signicat, John Erik Setsaas, explains why the organisation has joined EEMA: “It is important for us to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in our field and I know of no other European based trade organisations with the same scope and agenda as EEMA. Becoming a member is important for Signicat as it gives us unprecedented opportunities to engage with a network of professionals that share the same interests, as well as access to useful reports and whitepapers.”

Executive Director of EEMA, David Goodman, comments: “Through our programme of events, participation in EU projects, regional interest groups and of course our members, EEMA has a strong and well established presence across Europe.” Goodman adds: “Goodman adds: “This year we have expanded our activities in the Nordics, with the launch of a new regional community in collaboration with Norstella and focused on eID. Signicat is one of the leaders in eID across both Scandinavia and Europe, and we are delighted to welcome them to EEMA.”
