After three years of work, the list of people we feel deserve our gratitude grows considerably long. We would like to start this long list by highlighting our appreciation to Caroline Miltgen (GRANEM, University of Angers) and Christine Balagué (University of Lille) who contributed to the inception phase of the survey. Also, we are grateful to the members of our Scientific Committee and to the participants to the survey expert workshop, who commented and validated preliminary results and helped us brainstorm a number of thorny issues. This list is long and we mean no offence by mentioning them by their first name, namely: Ellen Helsper, London School of Economics; Marc van Lieshout, TNO; Carlos Flavian, Universidad de Zaragoza; Thierry Nabeth, INSEAD; Neil Robinson, RAND Europe; Ingo Naumann, ENISA; Jean-Marc Dinant, CRID (Centre de recherche informatique et droit); Masashi Ueda, National Institute of Informatics, Japan; Ayako Komatsu, ISEC, IPA, Japan; Laurent Beslay, European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS}; Ann Cavoukian, Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, Canada; Caspar Bowden, Microsoft; Alain Heureux, IAB Europe; Fran Meier, TrustE; Marit Hansen, Independent Centre for Privacy Protection Schleswig-Holstein, Germany; Reinhard Posch, CIO Federal Government Austria; We wish to thank our colleagues at DG INFSO for a working relation that that went far beyond contractual obligations, professional duty and inter-institutional good will. In them, we always found intelligent, critical readers, informed and committed professional. Among others who gave their time, we are very grateful to Michal Hrbaty, who kept a very close eye on the project from the beginning to almost the very end; to Anne Troye and Beatrice Covassi who saw it begin in 2008, and to Ken Ducatel, Frank Boissiere and Kristiina Pietikainen for their involvement in taking it to fruition. We also wish to thank colleagues at DG Justice, as their assistance made possible to field a much richer survey than would have been possible otherwise. Our gratitude also extends to DG COMM, a Commission service without which the Eurobarometer would not have been an option for us. Also to TNS Opinion, which collected quality data across EU27 and compiled the special Eurobarometer report. At JRC IPTS, we are grateful to Ramon Compañó. Had he not, in the meanwhile, taken up a new position as IPTS Director’s Assistant, he would have co-authored this report in his usual style, and perfectionist attitude. Last but certainly not least we would like to thank David Broster, our Head of Unit, who steered this work from the beginning and provided his invaluable advice during the critical stages of the development. The eID team at the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) managed the design, analysis and interpretation of Special Eurobarometer 359 on Electronic Identity and Data Protection. DG Justice contributed to the finalization of survey questions in relation to data protection. TNS Opinion conducted the survey in EU27 and contributed to preliminary data analysis.
