The workshop is organized jointly from GRIDS project and eIB project

*GRIDS (increasinG tRust with eID for Developing buSiness): GRIDS aims at simplifying the online remote onboarding of individual and business customers, mostly SMEs,. It specifically allows business platforms to enlarge their customer base across borders providing access to a secure digital environment where transaction participants are reliably identified and authenticated. GRIDS provides electronic one-stop-shop solutions for a complete and accurate KYC screening -including not only company information and documents (name, register number, country/jurisdiction, court or legal form) but also the identification of natural and legal persons through effective access to the cross-border functionalities of a well-established eID DSI and eIDAS core service platform.

**eIB (eIDAS enabled i-banking): eIB aims at developing a business process model for automating the process of opening a new customer and bank account cross – border. It will design and develop a new generation of cross-border e-banking services by creating an eIDAS enabled value chain, an "i-marketplace", where a Bank and Retail Service Providers (operating in different locations across the EU) collaborate in real-time to identify users with high level of assurance, via their eIDAS identifiers, exchange assets and information and ultimately offer banking products and automated e-services.

The project is funded by the Connection Europe Facility (CEF) - Telecommunications Sector - Agreement number INEA/CEF/ICT/A2019/1926018
