Digital Europe for All (DE4A) Launches Doing Business Abroad Pilot

Digital Europe for All (DE4A), a three-year Member State-driven project that is supporting the Single Digital Gateway Regulation across Europe and helping to make the digital single market a reality, today announced the launch of its Doing Business Abroad pilot.
The Doing Business Abroad pilot aims at demonstrating in practice the benefits for companies and competent authorities of realising across borders the principles of Once-Only and digital-by-default. It also supports the use of innovative approaches such as validating mandates of company representatives. The pilot is proud to announce that the first cross-border service has been launched for piloting.
The service largely corresponds to a fully online procedure of the 'Starting, running and closing a business' in the Single Digital Gateway Regulation (SDGR), which allows companies from Romania to easily register their company with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) in The Netherlands.
Further cross-border services and combinations of Member States are expected to be launched in the coming days.
Details of the services and the guidelines for participation can be found on the microsite of the Doing Business Abroad pilot at https://www.de4a.eu/doingbusinessabroadpilot

Digital Europe for All (DE4A) - Launch of new services in the Studying Abroad pilot

The Studying Abroad pilot of the DE4A project aims at demonstrating in practice the benefits for students and competent authorities of realizing across borders the principles of Once-Only and digital-by-default. The pilot is proud to announce that new cross-border educational services have been launched for piloting.
The services largely correspond to the fully online procedure of the 'Studying' Life Event in the Single Digital Gateway Regulation (SDGR), which allow students from Slovenia to easily pre-enrol for a master degree study at University Jaume I in Spain, and Spanish students to apply for study grants at the Jozef Stefan Institute in Slovenia. Students will use their national eIDs to access the services and will explicitly request the use of the DE4A technical system to have their diploma evidence required by the service transferred electronically from a trusted source in their home country satisfying applicable provisions of the SDGR and the GDPR. This way, students will no longer have to search for the evidence and fill in the necessary application forms by themselves.

Further cross-border services and combinations of Member States are expected to be launched in the coming weeks

Digital Europe for All (DE4A) Launches Studying Abroad Pilot

Digital Europe for All (DE4A), a three-year Member State-driven project that is supporting the Single Digital Gateway Regulation across Europe and helping to make the digital single market a reality, today announced the launch of its Studying Abroad pilot.
The Studying Abroad pilot aims at demonstrating in practice the benefits for students and competent authorities of realising across borders the principles of Once-Only and digital-by-default. It also supports the use of innovative approaches such as self-sovereign identities, digital wallets, and distributed ledgers in higher education domain, while also incorporating the European Blockchain Service Infrastructure (EBSI). The pilot is proud to announce that the first cross-border education service has been launched for piloting.
The service largely corresponds to a fully online procedure of the 'Studying' Life Event in the Single Digital Gateway Regulation (SDGR), which allows students from Slovenia to easily apply for recognition of higher education diplomas in Portugal. Students use their national eIDs to access the service at INESC-ID, a partner of the project affiliated with Instituto Superior Técnico, the largest engineering school in Portugal. Using that service, students can request their diplomas, which are stored in a DE4A digital wallet in the form of verifiable credentials, to be recognised in Portugal. The digital wallet on a mobile phone allows students to securely manage their diploma evidences received from a trusted source in their home country.
Further cross-border services and combinations of Member States are expected to be launched in the coming weeks.

DE4A to Demonstrate How it is Streamlining Interactions Between Citizens, Businesses and Governments During European Week of Regions and Cities

Digital Europe for All (DE4A), has been selected as a partner for the European Week of Regions and Cities. The EU funded project, that is supporting the Single Digital Gateway Regulation across Europe and helping to make the digital single market a reality, will host a live online information session during the event. DE4A consortium partners will demonstrate how interactions between citizens, businesses and governments can be streamlined, through the demonstration of its Moving Abroad pilot.
In an efficient Digital Single Market, effectively enabling the cross-border exercise by citizens and businesses of their Single Market rights is just as important for cities and regions as for Member States. Speeding up the efficiency of business is essential for continued growth. Staff and citizen mobility is both a complementary requirement and an essential requirement to attract incoming business activity. The DE4A project is streamlining how EU citizens, business and governments interact.
As a selected European Week of Regions and Cities partner, DE4A will host a live free-to-attend online information session entitled ‘Streamlining how citizens and business interact with governments’. Taking place on Tuesday, October 12, from 17:30 to 18:30 (CEST), the session will present the current challenges of cross-border interoperability and how the DE4A project is helping citizens and businesses overcome them. DE4A will introduce its Moving Abroad pilot which be launches in October 2021, with the aim of creating a digitised process for requesting and delivering evidence in real-time (free from any language barriers), to streamline the process for EU citizens moving from one Member State to another.
The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to cohesion policy. It has grown to become a unique communication and networking platform, bringing together regions and cities from all over Europe, including politicians, administrators, experts and academics.
Registration for DE4A’s ‘Streamlining how citizens and business interact with governments’ webinar is open now.

The Slovenian Ministry of Public Administration is part of the international consortium of DE4A

The project covers the establishment of those building blocks that are intended to enable the implementation of cross-border electronic services according to modern principles and requirements of legislation. The emphasis is on combining and integrating past projects that addressed isolated functionalities (cross-border data exchange on a "one time" basis, cross-border authentication compliant with eIDAS requirements, "digital default" - STORK, TOOP projects, etc.) into comprehensive e-services , which meet the requirements of modern principles and relevant legislation at national and EU level. It includes the potential use of innovative technologies (eg blockchain and artificial intelligence) in areas where this makes sense

DE4A to Support European Public Administrations in the Implementation of the Single Digital Gateway Regulation

DE4A is in compliance with the Single Digital Gateway (SDG) – of which the European Commission states: “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. By the end of 2023 at the latest, they will be able to perform a number of procedures in all EU member states without any physical paperwork, like registering a car or claiming pension benefits.”
