Bringing Contactless EMV payment to Student ID Cards

Last updated: 19 March 2014

Banco Santander, a global financial company, has a long-standing commitment to supporting higher education through its Santander Universities division. Along with funding research, scholarships and grants, Santander Universities Global Division also develops innovative new technlogies, and we are proud to be a supplier of its university smart cards.

I met Vicente Prior de Castro, Director Area Products and Channels for Santander Universities Global Division, Banco Santander at the recent Cartes show in Paris, and he was kind enough to explain the university smart card program in his own words, and to share the latest innovations available on these multi-function ID cards.
