After more than two years since its last edition, the eDelivery team has relaunched the Interoperability Forum in May 2023. In the Interoperability Forum, the software developers and service providers had a chance to learn about the latest developments around the eDelivery specifications and components, the relevant regulations and funding opportunities.
About the presenters:
Bogdan Dumitriu is the project officer in charge of eDelivery in DIGIT, responsible for the building block's technical specifications, sample implementations and various services. He moved to DIGIT in 2019 as a policy officer after having previously worked in DG Justice and Consumers to support the implementation of e-CODEX. Prior to joining the European Commission in 2012, he worked for six years as a software developer. Throughout his professional career, he participated in several small- and large-scale IT projects either in a technical, managerial, policy or – most often – mixed capacity.
Monika Kokstaite is an external consultant heading the eDelivery Stakeholder and Communication Management office in DIGIT. Prior to joining DIGIT, Monika worked in various consulting, policy, research and education institutions on the European Union.
The eDelivery building block helps public administrations and businesses (and indirectly citizens) to participate in eDelivery messaging infrastructures which facilitate organisation-to-organisation messaging by enabling their systems to interact with each other in a secure, reliable and trusted way. The Digital Europe Programme currently ensures the funding of the services offered by the eDelivery building block as part of its policy of promoting the adoption of common standards in different policy domains (such as eJustice, eProcurement, eCustoms, eProcurement, eHealth, etc.) under Specific Objective 5.
About the building blocks:
The Building Blocks are standards-based open and reusable digital solutions that enable basic capabilities, such as trusted authentication and secure data exchange. They offer basic capabilities that can be used in any European project to facilitate the delivery of digital public services across borders.
Deployed alone or as a portfolio, the building blocks allow data to become the digital lifeblood of modern services, built on the principle of interoperability. The building blocks implement the provisions of the eIDAS regulation on authentication and trust services in the internal market, a global legal and technical reference in secure, trusted cross-border authentication.
The role of the building blocks can also be seen in the digitisation and innovation of market processes. Digital solutions that respect a common standard open up balanced competition within the internal market, along with the door to innovative new processes and a greening of old, paper-based business processes.
About the Digital Europe Programme:
The Digital Europe Programme introduced some organisational changes to the provision of cross-border interoperable digital services deployed under it. This includes focused efforts to support the digital transformation of public administrations throughout Europe.
The Digital Europe Portal is the home of the eIDAS enabler building blocks: eDelivery, eID, eInvoicing, eSignature and OOTS. It is the one-stop shop for information about the building blocks. The portal provides access to tools, services and software that can be used in any European project to facilitate the delivery of digital public services across borders.
