Reaping the benefits of eID in different business sectors within the EU and beyond

29 September 2011 Brussels, Belgium

The European Union acknowledged the need for electronic identification at an early stage. The actual adoption in the member states did not proceed as fast as initially expected. Various reasons have influenced the slow pace, such as the fragmentation of the market of IT solutions, the lack of interoperability among different solutions and the differences in semantic, organisational and legal perspectives between Member States. The European Commission is organising this event that aims to identify commonalities and differences in the use of eID in different economic sectors, so as to identify needs and demand, but also barriers that influence the deployment of eID in Europe.

'eHealth and Equity in the Global Health Communities' workshop

15 December 2011 Brussels, Belgium

The workshop will seek answers to questions such as: What types of disparities does this ease of access minimize or exacerbate? How are health systems and their governance influenced by these eHealth solutions, policies and practices? What evidence is there to strengthen activities and programmes that support local, regional, national and global health communities? We particularly seek experiences and lessons learnt in low-resource settings including contributors from developing countries. This workshop will act as a means of dissemination of the key findings to high-level decision-makers; as a promoter of stronger commitment on eHealth interoperability and its wider application at global level and as a preparatory forum for selecting issues to present at the forthcoming World Health Assembly.
