On October 9th and 10th, 2023, the second workshop of WP6 Social Security of the DC4EU project unfolded in Vienna, Austria. Organized by DVSV (Dachverband der Sozialversicherungsträger) and hosted by SVS (Socialversicherungsanstalt der Selbständigen). The event brought together approximately 40 in-person and 20 online participants representing 14 countries.
The workshop provided a comprehensive understanding of the business requirements for implementing two important entitlement documents in the EUDI wallet ecosystem: the digital European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) and the Portable Document A1 (PDA1). Participants were encouraged to engage in interactive and collaborative discussions, which included breakout sessions in smaller groups, interactive games, and problem-solving tasks.
The activities facilitated the exchange of ideas and insights. The focus of the workshop was on the issuing and verification of digital PDA1 and EHIC. Keynote speakers played a pivotal role in the event, offering their expertise and thoughts on the digital transformation of social security coordination in Europe.
The workshop was not all business. It provided networking opportunities to the attendees and unwind at an evening event held at a traditional Viennese, “Heuriger.” This delightful gathering featured wine tasting and traditional Austrian cuisine, forging personal connections among the attendees.
