e-SENS – Elec­tron­ic Sim­ple Eu­ro­pean Net­worked Ser­vices

e-SENS is a Large Scale Pi­lot (LSP) ini­ti­at­ed by the Eu­ro­pean Com­mis­sion, which was launched on 1st April 2013. As an EU-project fund­ed un­der the ICT Pol­i­cy Sup­port Pro­gramme (ICT PSP) of the Com­pet­i­tive­ness and In­no­va­tion Frame­work Pro­gramme (CIP), it fo­cus­es on strength­en­ing the dig­i­tal sin­gle mar­ket and fa­cil­i­tat­ing cross-bor­der pub­lic ser­vices. 100 part­ners from 20 Eu­ro­pean coun­tries, in­clud­ing Nor­way and Turkey, par­tic­i­pate in e-SENS. Fur­ther­more the Eu­ro­pean Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Stan­dards In­sti­tute (ET­SI) and the Open­PEP­POL As­so­ci­a­tion are part­ners in e-SENS. The to­tal costs of this LSP amount to € 27,4 mil­lion.

e-SENS – Electronic Simple European Networked Services

The aim of the project is to de­vel­op a com­mon in­fras­truc­ture for in­ter­op­er­a­ble pub­lic ser­vices in Eu­rope, which will be used by cit­i­zens, the pri­vate sec­tor and pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tions. The ex­ist­ing Large Scale Pi­lots such as STORK (e-ID), PEP­POL (e-Pro­cure­ment), SPOCS (e-Busi­ness), ep­SOS (e-Health) and e-Codex (e-Jus­tice) have al­ready proven that pro­vid­ing cross-bor­der ser­vices can be made sim­pler. In the dif­fer­ent do­mains, tech­ni­cal build­ing blocks have been de­vel­oped and pi­lot­ed that en­able seam­less cross-bor­der ser­vices. e-SENS will con­sol­i­date and so­lid­i­fy the work done in the pre­vi­ous LSP projects, it will in­dus­tri­al­ize the so­lu­tions and ex­tend their po­ten­tial to new do­mains.

e-SENS fo­cus­es on the core build­ing blocks such as e-ID, e-Sig­na­ture, e-Doc­u­ments and e-De­liv­ery. These prospec­tive­ly con­sol­i­dat­ed and im­proved build­ing blocks aim to pro­vide the foun­da­tion for the plat­form of “core ser­vices” for the e-Gov­ern­ment cross-bor­der dig­i­tal in­fras­truc­ture fore­seen in the Ten-Tele reg­u­la­tion for im­ple­ment­ing the “Con­nect­ing Eu­rope Fa­cil­i­ty” (CEF).

On be­half of the Fed­er­al Min­istry of the In­te­ri­or (BMI), the Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion (BVA) is car­ry­ing out dif­fer­ent tasks in e-SENS, part­ly in a lead­ing po­si­tion:

  • Work Pack­ages 2 “Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Mar­ket­ing”: ac­tive con­trib­u­tor
  • Work Pack­ages 3 “Sus­tain­abil­i­ty and Long-Term Gov­er­nance”: task lead­er Task 3.5 “Gov­er­nance Im­ple­men­ta­tion”
  • Work Pack­ages 6 “Build­ing Blocks Pro­vi­sion”: ac­tive con­trib­u­tor to Com­pe­tence Clus­ter 6.1 “e-De­liv­ery and e-In­ter­ac­tion” and to Com­pe­tence Clus­ter 6.3 “Iden­ti­ty, Se­cu­ri­ty and Trust”

This par­tic­u­lar­ly in­cludes the fol­low­ing re­spon­si­bil­i­ties:

  • pub­lic re­la­tions ac­tiv­i­ties, in or­der to achieve broad ac­cep­tance and ap­pli­ca­tion of the e-SENS re­sults
  • co­or­di­na­tion and man­age­ment of Task 3.5 “Gov­er­nance Im­ple­men­ta­tion” in WP 3, which will make pro­pos­als for a fu­ture gov­er­nance struc­ture, for a le­gal frame­work and for the “Con­nect­ing Eu­rope Fa­cil­i­ty” in or­der to en­sure the sus­tain­abil­i­ty of the e-SENS re­sults ac­tive con­tri­bu­tion to Com­pe­tence Clus­ter 6.1 and Com­pe­tence Clus­ter 6.3 in or­der to es­tab­lish a com­mon trans­port in­fras­truc­ture suit­able for the re­quire­ment of cross-bor­der com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween e-Gov­ern­ment ap­pli­ca­tions in dif­fer­ent do­mains.
