The EU Digital Wallet Consortium (EWC) is a joint effort to successfully leverage the benefits of the proposed EU digital identity in the form of Digital Travel Credentials across the Member States. The EWC intends to build on the Reference Wallet Application to enable a use case focused on Digital Travel Credentials. We expect this use case to necessitate the use of multiple Electronic Attestation of Attributes and Credentials as well as the involvement of both the private sector and the public sector. The EWC consists of representatives of all 27 Member States and also includes partners from other countries. Such a wide representation provides a unique capacity to issue Person Identification Data (PID) for both natural persons and legal entities. The EWC has the capacity to extend such PID/ODI attestations and fully explore flows that require multiple Electronic Attestations of Attributes and Credentials. The EWC is especially interested in applying its expertise in user privacy and user control.

Workplan and workpackages

  • WP1 and WP5 relates to Project Management and Communication – WP1 covers aspects within the consortium while WP5 is dedicated to project results dissemination and communication with external projects and bodies.
  • WP4 is the architectural WP and covers the strategic infrastructure needed by other technical WPs. Interoperability, overall technical testing, sealing and many other aspects are covered by this WP.
  • WP3 covers the Reference Wallet integration as well as development of PID and ODI Credentials. Moreover, B2B test scenarios needed for additional testing of the PID/ODI combination are also developed in WP3.
  • WP2 covers the application of Digital Travel Credentials across the User Journey, integration of Payment and onboarding of Relying Parties, and capturing User Feedback and barriers to scaling.
