The LSPs have been developed and run under the ICT Policy Support Programme in five main areas: e-ID, e-Procurement, Business Lifecycle, e-Health and e-Justice, in order to engage public authorities, service providers, industry and research centres across the EU in the development and testing of real cross-border digital services.
One of the core phases of these pilot projects is the defining of the use cases. A use case is a most likely real-life scenario that would truly improve citizens and businesses' life. Good examples of a use cases would be: registering a new business in Member State A, even if the business owner/service provider is a resident of Member State B; or using healthcare services (physician, hospital, healthcare centre or pharmacist) abroad.
e-SENS recently achieved this turning point, defining its primary use cases for piloting. The selected scenarios are as follows:
The pilots shall build on relevant policies and legislative initiatives at a European and national level, and will be based on technical modules used in a cross-border context, thus re-using work done in previous LSPs
As this landmark was reached e-SENS moves on towards bringing down the digital borders in Europe bringing Digital Single Market to reality, many years after the physical barriers were already removed.
