2020 CEF Telecom call - eIdentification & eSignature (CEF-TC-2020-1) CEF-TC-2020-1-eIdentification-esignature Closed!


Secure electronic transactions require certainty about the identities of the parties taking part in them, as well as the proper accreditation of their will. Electronic identification and authentication (eID) and electronic signatures (eSignatures) are therefore key enablers for secure electronic transactions, and thus for the realisation of a Digital Single Market.

Thanks to the eIDAS Regulation, providing for the legal cross-border recognition of eID and eSignatures (as well as other trust services like eDelivery), the European Union can benefit from a predictable regulatory environment to enable secure and seamless electronic interactions between businesses, citizens and public authorities.


Under this call, proposals to be funded must address at least one of the following four objectives

  1. eID DSI integratio
  2. Attributes enablement
  3. eIDAS node upgrade
  4. Uptake and reuse of eSignature
