The “Mobile Cross-Border Government Services for Europe” (mGov4EU) project will lift cross-border services supported by the Single Digital Gateway Regulation (SDGR) and by the eIDAS Regulation to new levels by enabling them for a mobiledevice use we nowadays naturally expect. This shall come with unprecedented user journeys by making extensive use of automatic attribute provision and SDGR’s once-only principle, complemented by mobile identification so that the so-far cumbersome filling of complex forms gets replaced by user-controlled and user-consented releasing of authoritative data. By taking advantage of security features of modern smartphones like hardware-backed secure elements together with integrated convenience elements like biometric sensors, mGov4EU will meet both the security needs and data-protection expectations one has into public services and the usability challenges that arise when accessing complex services using constrained mobile devices. mGov4EU will, therefore, research, design, implement, and evaluate an open ecosystem for secure mobile government services to be used across Europe and beyond. This is accomplished by combining and enhancing the existing eIDAS Layer and SDGR Layer with modules for mobile devices that are generic enough so that they can be re-used in the emerging and thus still heterogeneous European mobile-government landscape. Thus, mGov4EU will provide a trustworthy federation of collaborative platforms, which facilitates the co-delivery, reuse, and trustworthy provision of accessible and easy-to-use public services. mGov4EU will implement the once-only, digital-by-default and mobile-first principles in a user centric and user friendly manner in order to support and complement the practical implementation of the eIDAS and the Single Digital Gateway Regulations.

The mGov4EU project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 959072.
