Why Dice Europe

why dice Europe?

The intention of DICE is to foster collaboration and work together on the adoption of a dignified digital identity between governments, citizens, and companies across Europe. 

unConferences are particularly generative: with a facilitator, we will co-create the agenda live each day of the event. There are no keynotes or panels, it’s all about exploring the topic with professional peers from a range of identity areas. Click here to learn more.

There are many reasons that secure identity systems are needed for connecting to others, tracking trade, supporting labor markets, and crossing borders.  Significant investments have been made into the development of interoperable standards, protocols, systems application layers, conceptual use cases, and more.

EVENT background

The Digital Identity unConference Europe is inspired by the Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) that has been held twice a year, since 2005 in California for the global community working on Internet identity. The two facilitators and producers of IIW, Kaliya Young, also known as the Identity Woman, and Heidi Nobantu Saul are collaborating with a local partner Trust Square to host, and the Swiss Digital Identity and Data Sovereignty Association (DIDAS).

The time is right to host an event for the European region with the same Open Space unConference format that the Internet Identity Workshop uses. DICE will bring together business decision-makers, innovative startups, bold large companies, and governments, who are exploring the value of digital identity, building products, and developing services using emerging digital identity technologies. One of the goals of the event is to foster a more connected ecosystem of companies working in European Countries.

Trust Square in Zurich is the perfect location for this gathering, in terms of meeting space available, proximity to the train station, and a variety of lodging options. Zurich is in the heart of continental Europe, a place where a lot of innovation is happening, especially also in the world of decentralized technologies, with world-leading universities (e.g. University of Zurich and ETH) and easily accessible by train and plane from anywhere in Europe and the world (we have excellent plane connections from Zurich airport).

We look forward to seeing you in June 2024!
