The CEF eID Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) helps public administrations and private online service providers to extend the use of their online services to citizens from other EU Member States in line with the eIDAS Regulation.

The Action aims at promoting the uptake and use of eSignature in the Greek Public Administration and the use of cross-border eIDs among ERASMUS students.

It will develop a central service for remote eSignature for the Greek Public Administration to enable the creation of legally binding electronic signatures for the needs of the Greek Public Administration and the cross-border validation of the e-signature. The system will be built on top of 2 components: the existing eIDAS infrastructure and a Qualified Trust Service Provider (QTSP). The remote e-signature solution will be based on eSignature DSI (DSS) and will be deployed in 2 services.

The Action will also connect AcademicID service to the eIDAS node in Greece in order to allow Erasmus exchange students from EU universities outside Greece to use their eID when applying for this service. This will allow the Erasmus exchange students from EU universities to thus gain access to several student discounts and benefits provided by the Greek Universities, the State or even private entities.
