IDnext and SIDN intensify collaboration

Joint IDnext event will promote innovation in the field of digital identification

The eighth IDnext event is to take place in The Hague on 25 and 26 September 2019. IDnext is Europe's leading independent, interdisciplinary conference for experts and key players in the world of digital identification. From 2019, SIDN and the IDnext organisation will co-host the two-day event devoted to internet security, privacy, trust and digital identities.

Digitisation of society is the internet's new frontier

As the digitisation of society gathers pace, it exerts increasing influence on the economy, society and everyday life. "Secure digital identities are a prerequisite for trust in the digital world," says SIDN's CEO Roelof Meijer. "By collaborating and exchanging knowledge with various key actors, we aim to energise this field. That's why we've been partnering IDnext since 2015." IDnext is an open, independent platform that provides support for innovative developments in the field of digital identification. And, starting in 2019, SIDN and IDnext will be co-organising the number 1 event in that field.

Promoting innovation in the field of digital identification

Robert Garskamp, founder of the IDnext platform, is looking forward to the closer working relationship between two organisations with perfectly complementary missions. "Through this strategic partnership with SIDN, we want to place more emphasis on the social role of the internet user," he says. "By bringing the world of technology and the world of the user together at the IDnext event, we are looking to promote innovation in the fields of digital identification and privacy, security and trust."

IDnext 2019

The 2019 IDnext event is scheduled for 25 and 26 September, at New Babylon in The Hague. The conference will be an unmissable gathering for public and private-sector experts and professionals with an interest in digital identification. Internet security, mobility, standards, privacy and other topical issues will be thoroughly explored in presentations and workshops.

Another highlight of the event will be presentation of the Identity Innovation Award. The award's primary purpose is to spotlight innovative projects, concepts and services, and further incentivise startups and established organisations active in this field.
