Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) promises to empower European citizens with new means to manage privacy, eliminate logins, and enjoy much faster and safer electronic transactions via the internet as well as in real life.

Do you have questions about the eSSIF-Lab Open Calls? Want tips for crafting an effective proposal?

Join our live webinar on the eSSIF-Lab’s current Open Calls!

2nd Business – oriented Open Call

eSSIF-Lab is looking for proposals to develop and demonstrate SSI working solutions for a real-world, domain-oriented problem or opportunity, in prioritized eSSIF-Lab areas (Health Tech, e-Government and Education), or in the Open Disruptive Innovation track (which is covering innovative bottom-up projects out of these verticals).

eSSIF-Lab will select 23 best SMEs (including startups), not-for-profit entities (such as foundations or associations), or collaborative initiatives (as micro-consortia of these entities)

Proposed solutions must be commercial, competitive and sector-specific SSI applications for products and services. They are expected to leverage on the added value that previously developed functionalities within the eSSIF-Lab, to include the issuing, exchange and consumption of SSI credentials as a core element and to have high technology and investment readiness levels.

The proposals selected in the Second Business-oriented Call will be invited to join an 8-month acceleration programme, including business and technical support to integrate eSSIF-Lab and other SSI technology with market propositions.

  • Deadline: 7th of July 2021 at 17:00 (CEST)
  • Funding: up to 106,000 € (for the best in class)

Infrastructure – oriented Open Call

This call targets open-source technical enhancements and extensions for eSSIF-Lab Framework which fall within the SSI concept (i.e. technologies which allow individuals to control their electronic identities and guard their privacy).

Open source SSI components developed as a result of this open call will be applied by other participants in eSSIF-Lab. Hence, applicants shall be willing and able to work in an agile way with lots of communication and interaction with other participants in the eSSIF-Lab ecosystem, together with developing the eSSIF-Lab Framework and testing the interoperability of delivered components.

This call targets innovators in the SSI domain (such as outstanding academic research groups, hi-tech startups, SMEs, etc.), legally established/resident in a Member State of the EU or in an H2020 associated country.
