Tuesday 22 September 2015 | 15:12 CET | News
The European Union will co-finance 20 projects addressing the cross-border interconnection of electronic identification (eID) services in Europe. The EUR 5.5 million investment comes from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme in the sector of telecommunications. It will help EU Member States with the roll-out of technical infrastructure to create interoperable, pan-European eID services under the recently completed eIDAS legal framework. The eID projects will be managed by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA).
