In this webinar we will present the work done so far to support national identity federations/NRENs to enable their universities in participating to the next Erasmus+ programme via eduGAIN.

Over the last couple of years GÉANT (with some other NRENs) is participating in EC-funded projects (namely MyAcademicID and EDSSI) that aim to enable electronic access to core Erasmus+ services, by delivering a core production platform for student mobility. In November 2020, we launched the MyAcademicID Identity and Access Platform (MyAID IAM) to enable students to access Erasmus+ core services using their federated academic identities, as well as their national eIDs through eIDAS. This is a major result, with 10.000 students from more than 600 HEIs in 31 National Identity Federations around the world logging in via MyAID IAM.


The webinar will cover:

  • The upcoming deadlines for universities participating in the Erasmus+ programme to enable federated access for their Erasmus students;

  • How NRENs/Identity federations can support universities in the digitalisation proecess;

  • MyAcademicID and the European Student Identifier;        

Who should attend

We encourage all federation operators to participate.  We are aware that many of you have been already approached by their universities and/or by the Erasmus National Officers, so we hope to clarify any questions you may have.

The event will be recorded to ensure that everybody can be informed.
