Funke
EUDI WALLET Prototypes

Hello people with radical new ideas!
We need pioneering solutions to shape the future of digital identity in Germany. We need you.

Digital proof of identity is an important basis for the digitalization of our lives. Digital wallets enable users to receive, manage, and present proof of identity and other documentation as part of digital processes.

This will make digital wallets an essential part of our society’s digital infrastructure. They will enable the complete digitalization of processes and thus allow for completely new approaches to problems, which also makes them the basis for disruptive innovations.

Various approaches are currently being discussed for implementing the wallets, but there is not enough implementation experience to make a well-founded decision on the most suitable approach.

Develop the most trustworthy, user-friendly, and universally applicable European Digital Identity Wallet for users in Germany!

The aim of this Funke is to create prototypes with differing wallet implementations for the most trustworthy, user-friendly, and universally applicable European Digital Identity Wallets (EUDIW) for users in Germany.

*When assessing Google's application, the jury expressed concerns about data protection. One jury member was clearly against Google due to privacy and anti-trust concerns. As the Google team met all the evaluation criteria and requirements (including privacy requirements), the majority of the jury members decided to invite the team to participate in Stage 1 and re-evaluate this aspect (among others) after the first stage.
