2019 CEF Telecom call - EU Student eCard Core Service Platform (CEF-TC-2019-4) CEF-TC-2019-4 Closed!


The objective of this call for proposals is to design, develop and roll-out a solid technical infrastructure to support European higher education institutions in offering to students a secure cross-border electronic identification and authentication as well as cross-border electronic exchange of data required by the online student services.

  • enable students to identify themselves in a trusted manner, in line with the once-only-principle ;
  • allow secure exchange and verification of student data and academic records;
