Goals & Objectives

  • Explain to the broader community GRIDS and eIB projects main outcomes (both are funded by the European Commission, through CEF Telecom), and report on the projects’ objectives and achievements until now, and receive feedback.
  • Showcase the potential use of EU eID, and the upcoming EU common eID, in the KYC industry, in the light of the thriving customer digital onboarding processes and remote KYC practices, the opportunities and constraints introduced by the new AMLR Regulation package, and the potential bottlenecks the two projects identify and study in detail,
  • Present the latest EU policy trends as far as the standardization of a minimum KYC facility is regarded and beyond (Central Banks Digital Currency/CBDC, adaptation of KYC/AML guidelines to the needs of remote identification, verification and KYC).


Policy-makers, entrepreneurs and executives from SMEs and large companies, academics, researchers, students, and projects’ Industry Monitoring Groups
