ECCA Publishes Online Survey Report on European Student eID

The European Campus Card Association (ECCA) is actively progressing with a ‘Consultation Process on the Development of a Proposal for a Trusted Student Identification Framework’ (Student eID Project) to support the provision of secure identification and authentication of students on a cross-border basis in Europe. 

The purpose of this eID Project is to obtain a consensus between European Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), service providers, students and the relevant stakeholders on the necessary structure, technologies and requirements that will facilitate the implementation of a common student eID throughout Europe. This project, supported by the Erasmus+ programme of the EU, is part of a consultation process on the ‘Development of a Proposal for a Trusted Student Identification Framework’.

As part of the project activities, under Work Package 2, ‘Research, State-of-the-Art & Stakeholders Requirements’, an on-line survey was commissioned, in January 2021 (over a six-week period), to obtain the views and opinions of all relevant stakeholders regarding their requirements and the benefits of a European Student eID that will overcome the obstacles to the cross-border mutual recognition of students. In addition, the Student eID will provide access to both academic and nonacademic services on a cross-border basis. This survey was representative of all stakeholders, which included HEIs, service providers, students and others, from countries and regions across Europe, USA, Canada, and Asia, with a minimum of 150 target respondents. The total responses to the survey was 279 and the number of fully completed survey responses was 207 (completion rate 74%). The report was recently published in April 2021.
