International eduID BoF @ TNC21

(Timezone - Europe/Amsterdam)


Maarten Kremers (SURF)


Given the eduID initiatives that are arising in our community, SURF organised an international eduID-day in March 2020 with the people involved in these initiatives.

In this BoF we will follow-up on the eduID initiatives to get updates from each other and to determine where we can join forces.
