News > The View from the EEMA Chair – June

shamah-picOne of the many aspects of EEMA of which I am most proud is the enthusiastic and generous collaboration and participation of our members, particularly in respect of our involvement in EU projects and extensive programme of events.

To make it even easier for members to get involved in EEMA initiatives we are launching two exciting new panels.

Our Consortium Partner Panel presents a fantastic opportunity for EEMA members to participate in proposals for funded EU projects. EEMA has an impressive track-record in delivering work packages for projects including STORK, STORK 2.0, SSEDIC and FutureID, and we are currently actively engaged in the FutureTrust and LIGHTest initiatives. These are the types of high-profile and hugely important projects that members of the Consortium Partner Panel can look forward to being invited to get involved with. To check your eligibility and apply to join the panel please complete the online form at:

Our Speaker Panel is ideal for any EEMA member that is interested in presenting keynotes, chairing or participating in debates and seminars, whether at our hugely popular High-Level Fireside briefings, major conferences (including our Annual Conference and ISSE) and also partner events.  We are always on the lookout for exceptional content delivered by engaging, inspiring and respected presenters. The Speaker Panel will be the go-to resource for our event planning team.

If you have not yet had the opportunity to experience an EEMA event, I encourage you to join us in London on 4th and 5th July for our 30th Annual EEMA conference. We have put together an agenda of the very highest calibre speakers who will discuss issues of trust, privacy, identity and cybersecurity. So, book your place as a delegate today, and I hope to see your name on the agenda as a speaker at one of our events very soon. All you need to do to join is complete the online application form:
