EU Initiatives

European Single Digital Gateway

The single digital gateway will facilitate online access to the information, administrative procedures and assistance services that citizens and businesses need to get active in another EU country. By the end of 2020, citizens and companies moving across EU borders will easily be able to find out what rules and assistance services apply in their new residency.

eIDAS Trust Regulation

eIDAS stands for electronic Identification (eID), Authentication and Trust Services. The eIDAS Regulation established the framework to ensure that electronic interactions between businesses are safer, faster and more efficient, no matter the European country they take place in. eIDAS is a European Regulation that creates one single framework for eID and trust services, making it more straightforward to deliver services across the European Union.

eIDAS and the Connecting Europe Facility

eIDAS brings interoperability of eIDs and digital Signatures  across all the EU. The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is the telecommunications backbone that the eID component of eIDAS utilises.

GDPR Made Simple

The GDPR outlines six data protection principles you must comply with when processing personal data. These principles relate to: Lawfulness, fairness and transparency - you must process personal data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject.

EU Blockchain Services Infrastructure

Blockchain has the potential to permeate general economic activities and public services at large. The European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI) is a joint initiative from the European Commission and the European Blockchain Partnership (EBP) to deliver EU-wide cross-border public services using blockchain technology.

In 2020, EBSI will become a Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Building Block, providing reusable software, specifications and services. This means increased online security when citizens, bushinesses and public administrations operate across borders.
