Banks and technology partners join EU-wide pilot of digital IDs

A new multi-country consortium of European identity experts has firmed up a proposal to deliver a large-scale, cross-border payments pilot. Six countries (Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Latvia and Norway) are part of the consortium, led by Nobid (Nordic-Baltic eID Project).

Supported by digital government agencies, banks, enterprises and technology providers, the group will collaborate to show how payments and ID can be combined across borders and in multiple currencies.

The consortium’s proposal focuses on payments, one of the top priority use cases in the EU’s digital ID wallet vision.
