CEF Digital 2018 Presented at S&R Conference 2017

European Commission, 2017 

On 29 March 2017 the European Commission organised the Sharing & Reuse Conference in Lisbon, Portugal. The event was held under the umbrella of the ISA² Programme  with the support of the Portuguese Administrative Modernization Agency (AMA).

The Sharing & Reuse Conference 2017 looked specifically at modernising public administration through sharing and reuse of IT solutions. Participants explored and discussed how sharing and reusing open source IT solutions can enable local, regional, national and European public administrations to deliver better electronic services to citizens at a reduced cost while promoting interoperability, standardisation and cooperation among them.

The conference included a presentation by the European Commission on the digital programme financed by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) – CEF Digital 2018. CEF Digital 2018 supports the provision of basic and re-usable digital services, known as the CEF building blocks. The CEF building blocks (eDelivery, eID, eSignature, eInvoicing & eTranslation) are available for free to public and/or private entities, depending on which CEF building blocks is being deployed, and can be subject to implementation costs. The CEF building blocks can be combined with each other and integrated with the more complex services, such as eHealth, eJustice or Cybersecurity.

In addition to the development and maintenance of the CEF building blocks, grant funding is provided by the Connecting Europe Facility to cover implementation costs. A €1.04 billion budget is earmarked for trans-European digital services for 2014-2020. The European Commission is running a number of calls for proposals in 2017, as outlined in the graph below:
