Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs: Unleashing Global Entrepreneurial Talent

The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program presents a unique opportunity for budding and aspiring entrepreneurs to expand their horizons through cross-border exchanges. By partnering with experienced entrepreneurs in other Single Market Programme (SMP) Participating Countries, new entrepreneurs gain invaluable on-the-job training, insights into advanced business practices, and exposure to broader markets. The programme not only facilitates the sharing of innovative ideas and skills but also enhances the competitiveness and international outlook of European small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This dynamic interaction fosters the development of sustainable, digital, and resilient businesses, significantly contributing to the European entrepreneurial ecosystem.

European Digital Identity and Trust Ecosystem

The initiative aims to support two waves of pilot programs to test and deploy the EU Digital Identity Wallet in key use cases, including cross-border applications using the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI). These pilots will also integrate the wallet into national electronic identification ecosystems across Member States. The second round of grants will enhance the wallet's technical specifications and implementation guidelines, preparing it for broader applications and enabling interaction with various public and private services. This will ensure that the wallet supports a wide range of attestations and identity credentials. Additionally, the initiative will bolster the European Digital Identity and Trust Ecosystem by developing and maintaining digital service infrastructures necessary for cross-border digital transactions. These include the European Trust Services Ecosystem, the eID component for cross-border identity recognition, and improvements to the EU Digital Identity Wallet. The initiative will also support standards-based solutions like eDelivery for secure data exchange, eSignature for secure digital transactions, and eArchiving for sustainable data preservation. These efforts will ensure interoperability, accessibility, and the overall enhancement of digital trust services across Europe.
