Digital COVID Certificate
Toward a standardized approach in the national implementation of the Digital COVID Certificate in Europe – experience from Denmark
How can the EU Digital COVID Certificate ensure a fast and safe reopening of European society, including free movement of EU citizens?
The Confederation of Danish Industry and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs are hosting a 90-minute digital conference, supported by one of the vendors delivering the certificate to multiple countries.
The conference gathers key decision makers from the EU commission, Danish and Belgian authorities, as well as key stakeholders in the European business, tourist, and travel industries. It focuses on how to ensure a fast and secure reopening of European society through the implementation of joint standards aligning to the Digital COVID Certificate across Member States.
Denmark has paved the way in setting up the solution for the Digital COVID Certificate, having introduced a national Corona Passport for domestic purposes, a solution that many other EU countries are looking into. Time is critical to ensure a proper and effective solution for a safe reopening.
During this exclusive event, the prominent speakers will discuss today’s key perspectives, solutions and challenges related to the implementation of the certificate structure across EU Member States.
