The MyAcademicID project enabled the secure and trusted access to the services of the European Student Card Initiative and the Erasmus+ programme using MyAcademicID. Users (students, faculty members and staff) can access these services and be recognised using the academic attributes from their HEI.

MyAcademicID builds upon the so-called identity federations where students & staff can login with their home university account or using eIDAS to access academic services online.

An important functionality of MyAcademicID is the European Student Identifier.
