Inter-university access to services of all universities in NRW, at any time and from anywhere with the access data of one's own institution. This is the goal of the project Federated Identity Management.nrw (IDM.nrw). Countless accounts, passwords and cumbersome login procedures will no longer be necessary in the future. In September 2020, the feasibility study was successfully completed with the result that university members have a great need for federated access to services. Therefore, the follow-up project will start in September 2021, where the goal will become a reality. Both organizational and technical challenges still need to be overcome for this to happen.

To keep you regularly up to date, we have launched a website where you can find all the information you need about this exciting project. Find out about the background, goals, current developments and much more. If you would like to get involved yourself, we cordially invite you to our nationwide workshops. You will find the link to register in the News/Dates section. We are also happy to be at your disposal personally.
