2019 CEF Telecom call - EU Student eCard (CEF-TC-2019-1) CEF-TC-2019-1-EUStudent-eCard Closed!


The objective of the call for proposals is to support cross-border student mobility through the development of solutions, based on the reuse of the eIDAS eID and if applicable of other CEF Building Blocks (such as eSignature, Automated Translation or eDelivery).

The solutions targeted by the proposals should enable:

  • Cross-border online access to academic and non-academic e-services for students provided by the host Higher Education Institutions (HEI) and other entities; and
  • As far as possible, the electronic transfer of student information among the involved parties (students, sending HEI and hosting HEI) in a trusted manner.


The solutions developed by the Actions will allow automatic recognition of student status and identity, electronic exchange of academic data, as well as secure access to universities' online services based on the Once-Only Principle. Students will be able to electronically apply to the participating Higher Education Institutions across borders without having to go physically to an office and go through all the administrative paperwork
