In this address, he will explain how FutureTrust – a project that is being funded within the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (Horizon 2020) under Grant Agreement No. 700542, – is supporting the practical implementation of the eIDAS egulation in Europe and beyond.

In a further presentation entitled ‘Global lightweight trust infrastructure’, Shamah will highlight the work being done by another important EU funded initiative – the LIGHTest project – to create a global cross-domain trust infrastructure that renders it transparent and easy for verifiers to evaluate electronic transactions.

Shamah comments: “FutureTrust and LIGHTest are two of the most important ongoing projects in the area of trust services, not only within the Europe’s digital society, but globally. In Rome, at PORVOO 19 I will share an update on the progress of these exciting initiatives, as well as offering insight in to the current eID landscape.”
