Projects :: WESIGN

WESIGN: WESIGN aims to increase access of SMEs to applications (B2B or B2G) relying on the use of secure certifcates.

Businesses want to make business with innovative techniques while keeping full control of the confidentiality, user authentication, integrity of the message, non-repudiation of transactions, and legitimate availability of services and information. Chambers of Commerce that are part of the Consortium provide end users (companies) with the technical infrastructure required to achieve this objective and link it to an increasing number of eBusiness and eGovernment applications which are available outside the national borders. WESIGN aims to increase access for SMEs to applications (B2B or B2G) relying on state of the art secure techniques - PKI based certificates. Workshops and online demos are organised with thousands of companies around Europe to validate a new marketing strategy for the wide use of eSignature in an open environment (qualified signature when required by law). Indicator of success are : - Number of country where the service is proposed. - Number of companies with an authentication certificate. - Number of authentication certificates used. - Number of cross border applications accessible with an authentication certificate. The duration of this market validation project is 18 months. The total budget is 3,264,075 � and the funding part of the Commission is 50%. The partners are: EUROCHAMBRES aisbl (coordinator), ChamberSign aisbl, Belgian Federation of Chambers of Commerce, ChamberSign France, Infocamere, Camerfirma, Swedish Chambers of Commerce, Chambers Ireland, Chamber of Commerce of Portugal, Union of Hellenic Chambers of Commerce, Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania, Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Infocert The coordinator can be contacted Vincent Tilman: tilman@eurochambres.eu Phone: +32 (0)2 282 08 50
