They will have the opportunity each to comment on the talks, add a thought or a question. Thereafter, we will work with a thematic scope of open questions that can be narrowed as needed to respond to any one or more of the challenges the talks have raised, including but not limited to:
the most prominent trust, usability, privacy, security, and other issues engendered by disruptive technologies in eGov developments.
the differences (if any) in approaching the implementation and adoption of disruptive technologies locally, nationally and internationally.
Questions will be taken from the audience.

IMPULSE “Identity Management in PUbLic Services” aims to transform the mainstream discourse on digital identity by drawing up a user-centric multi-stage method of multidisciplinary evaluation of eID management that combines the bottom-up approach of co-creation with the need for a universal vision of digital identity ethics in providing public services.
