On 1 November 2019 the EU Cascaded Funding project ‘eSSIF-Lab’ (European Self-Sovereign Identity Framework Lab) has started. In this project, EU funds will be made available to European corporations, organisations, SME’s and start-ups that want to build or improve SSI (Self-Sovereign Identity) components. The aim of the eSSIF-Lab is to create a range of interoperable, open-source SSI components that will be used, not just in the Netherlands, but specifically also within Europe and possibly world-wide.

Call for Participation

Are you active in the field of identity and electronic transactions? Are you interested in receiving funding to further develop, integrate and test technologies for self-sovereign identity? Or can you use funding and support to integrate these technologies within your market proposition? Then we would like to invite you to apply to the open calls that will be published starting March 2020.

There are two types of open calls:

  • Infrastructure Open Calls: Aimed at European corporations and organisations that work on open-source development of components for SSI infrastructure,
  • Business Open Calls: Aimed at European start-ups or SME’s that develop commercial SSI software and services.

For more information on the process, please download the brochure.
