eduID: 1 digital identity for students

Education is digitising and becoming more flexible. Students want to shape their own educational career. This creates logistical and administrative challenges. That is why SURF, together with the institutions, is developing eduID: a single identity that students can use at every educational institution: before, during and after their studies.

Learning from other initiatives

National and international concepts regularly emerge that have much in common with eduID. We maintain contact with these initiatives. To learn from them, but also to cooperate with them in the future. After all, student mobility is increasingly crossing national borders.

Alignment with initiatives in the Netherlands

Several initiatives have been developed in the Netherlands that interface with eduID. For example, we are following the programme Control of Data of the central government, and the ECK iD which helps schools arrange data exchange around digital learning resources in a demonstrably secure way. Furthermore, we are involved in the identity app Yiviwhich allows you to log in easily and securely, share data and prove who you are.

Following international initiatives

Valuable concepts overlapping with eduID are emerging in other countries, such as Switzerland, Germany or Sweden. Important concepts are also emerging from the EU and the international education and research network G√ČANT, such as MyAcademicID, European Student Card and Erasmus Without Papers.
