Studying abroad has become increasingly popular over the years, especially thanks to the Erasmus support programme. In order to simplify the bureaucratic processes when moving to a foreign university, the consortium of StudIES+ will be developing a solution for digital student identities as well as secure and certified document exchange based on the European eIDAS Regulations from March 2018 onwards.
The use of digital signatures and identities is intended as replacement for processes relying on paper documentation.
These administration processes include the conclusion of internship contracts, the transfer of performance records, the conclusion of employment contracts and the processing of applications. Or an Erasmus student can use an Erasmus Student eCard on the mobile to access resources of the campus library.
An important aim of the StudIES+ project is to prove the cross-border functionality of the system, thus its use across all European countries.
The StudIES+ project is funded as 2017 CEF Telecom Call – eIdentification & eSignature Project. The project has received funding from the European Community’s Programme CEF-TC-2017-1.
