European Blockchain Services Infrastructure Luxembourg (EBSILUX)


Project Description:

The European Blockchain Service Infrastructure (EBSI) is a digital infrastructure for public services that is being jointly developed by the European Commission and the EU member states. EBSI is expected to bring significant benefits to EU citizens, enterprises and authorities by supporting cross-border (and local) applications. Digital Diplomas are one of the first applications supported by EBSI (https://ebsilux.lu/usecases-2/). The application is expected to give citizens more control of their educational credentials, reduce verification costs and improve trust in the diploma's authenticity. From a technical perspective, this is possible by combining blockchain technology with an emerging digital identity standard named Verifiable Credentials. This standard enables privacy-oriented and machine-verifiable digitisation of any document or plastic card that is used for the purpose of identification, authorization, authentication or attestation.

The objective of the EBSILUX Project is to make EBSI and its Digital Diplomas available in Luxembourg. In particular, we work together with Luxembourg’s Ministry for Digitalisation, Infrachain, LIST, and the University of Luxembourg to implement and trial EBSI's Digital Diplomas. The implementation is considered to be an essential building block for many future EBSI use cases in the public and private sector.
