2016 CEF Telecom call - eIdentification / eSignature (CEF-TC-2016-2) CEF-TC-2016-2-eSignature Closed!


The priority outcomes of this call for proposals are to integrate the eID and/or eSignature DSI in an existing e-service/system/online platform operating cross border to enable private and public sector entities (including local administrations) to accept issued eIDs and eSignatures from any Member State.

For eID, the primary focus will be on a few selected private sector areas presenting potential high volume cross-border transactions (i.e banking, electronic/Internet payment services, other financial services, insurance and aviation). However, other private sectors in which there is a demonstrated, realisable benefit are not excluded from the scope of this call.


Projects should contribute in particular to:

  • Increasing the widespread uptake and use of eID by the private sector, in particular banking, electronic/internet payment services, other financial services, insurance, and aviation which have the highest potential for take up in domestic and cross border scenarios and which are potentially the largest users and contributors to the Digital Single Market.
  • Improving the cross-border acceptance of eSignatures by public sector bodies, promoting business mobility and increasing the interoperability of eSignatures
