Really smart card project scoops EUREKA 2010 Innovation Award
Date:6/25/2010

Soon we will use our mobile phone to buy bus and train tickets and access health and other public services in other European states by just presenting an electronic card or passport, thanks to technology developed by this European partnership.

Most of us hate standing in queues or filling out forms, however patiently we suffer them. Electronic documents and signatures could save hours of our time running to offices and waiting for our identities and details to be checked, but attempts by governments and companies to use them have tended to be patchy. That is quickly changing, however, thanks to the results of an ambitious project, which has developed revolutionary global solutions.

Five years ago, developers at digital security solutions specialist Gemalto realised governments were increasingly introducing electronic passports or electronic identity documents and more and more telecoms operators were piloting new services where consumers could buy goods using technologies such as SMS. However, they believed for e-identity documents or mobile transaction systems to be useful they needed to be recognised by more than one government or mobile operator and use a few common security and transaction standards in a similar way to credit cards.

Gemalto teamed up with 15 other companies from six European countries to develop a set of international standards related to e-identity and mobile transactions and to demonstrate concrete implementation of these standards. At the heart of the project were advanced prototypes for new generation of e-ID cards or SIM devices. They called the project ONOM@TOPIC.

At a European level, they saw one clear tangible benefit for citizens: the possibility to access e-government services in other countries on the same basis as their own. 'We wanted European citizens to be able to access the same services in other member countries as at home,' said Jean-Pierre Tual. For that purpose, the project partners
