The 3CL Foundation is a partner in EBSI-CAN under the European Commission NGI Sargasso funding programme, focusing on catalysing European collaboration with the US and Canada on topics such as trust and data sovereignty, digital identity, internet architecture renovation, decentralised technologies, and standards, which are of utmost importance to shape the future Internet.
EBSI-CAN explores the potential for the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI) to be deployed as a verifiable, cross-border credentialing framework in Canada, levering on use-cases for cross-issuance, cross verification and cross-recognition with the centre of learners when traveling between the EU and Canada.
EBSI-CAN will provide a detailed examination of the end-to-end journey for learners traveling between the EU and Canada, aiming seamless recognition of credentials across borders. The project is determining whether EBSI can offer standardised, secure, and efficient solutions for learners to carry credentials and identity data, simplifying interactions with educational institutions and employers in both regions. The analysis prioritises ensuring a smooth experience for learners amidst the complexities of international borders, emphasising a standardised, secure, and streamlined approach.
