2019 CEF Telecom call - eIdentification & eSignature (CEF-TC-2019-1) CEF-TC-2019-1-eIdentification-esignature Closed!


The goal of this call is to consolidate the eIDAS-based ecosystem across the European Union to the benefit of all citizens and sectors across the EU and EEA countries.

Under this call, proposals will be funded that address one or more of the following three objectives:

  • eID DSI integration
  • Attributes enablement
  • Uptake and reuse of eSignature


The eID Generic Services support public and private bodies providing online services to integrate those services with the eIDAS interoperability nodes. This will enable them to accept foreign eIDs, and when applicable, attributes, mandates and authorities information associated to the eID, from the trustworthy and secure identification and authentication environment set up by the eIDAS regulation. Thanks to the combination of both forms of support, EU citizens will be free to rely on the eID that they already use at
national level to securely access digital services provided in other Member States, thus realising the Digital Single Market.

The eSignature Generic Services support the actual use of those tools in electronic signature systems. Thanks to such support, awareness and uptake of electronic signatures will increase, in particular qualified electronic signatures, thus increasing interoperability and mutual recognition of electronic signatures across the EU.
