Next Generation ID supports eIDEE-Contest

News from July 23, 2013

This year’s “eIDEE – Contest for the digital handshake”, organized by Bundesdruckerei, is searching again for innovative ideas to integrate the online ID function into services. Ideas can be submitted until August 18th 2013. Bundesdruckerei is one of the major partners in the innovation cluster “Next Generation ID”. Berlin-Brandenburg’s expert cluster, managed by FOKUS, gets ID-technologies of the next generation off the ground.

The new Identity Card is offering a whole range of possibilities for a secure identification on the internet: it protects and uses our identity at best. Through its complex and highly secure technology, just that minimum-amount of data is transferred that is necessary to ensure the requested service. In this way the new identity card is universally usable and also allows a highly secure innovation-design right from the beginning. So that creative innovations do not remain undetected, Bundesdruckerei is calling for IT-professionals, entrepreneurs, government employees, developers and students to submit their proposals for e-Government and e-Commerce until August 18th 2013. Regardless of whether being a private person, public institution or enterprise – each idea has an equal chance to win in the category “first prize”, “innovation”, “talent“ or “audience award”.

The awards show will take place end of November 2013 connected with a ceremony in Berlin.

eIDEE is looking forward to your ideas!
