First Release of the CEF Digital Single Web Portal
Today, the European Commission Directorate General for Informatics (DIGIT) has released the CEF Digital Single Web Portal.
The Single Web Portal is more than just a website. The Portal will be the central online hub for information and tools related to the CEF building blocks and provide information on the Sector Specific Digital Service Infrastructures (DSI). CEF building blocks offer basic capabilities that can be used in any European project to facilitate the delivery of digital public services across borders, while the Sector Specific DSI are projects that are supported by the CEF building blocks across policy domains. These are known collectively as CEF Digital.
The first release of the Portal enables users to discover the catalogue of building blocks, understand how they work and provides the software and services to successfully (re)use them.
Forthcoming releases will allow for enhanced collaboration between users and user groups and an effective management of information about projects. This will include different levels of access to the platform, depending on the user group and ensure user-friendly information exchange.
The building blocks have been developed and piloted over a number of years within the EU. The Portal, having been devised in close collaboration with the CEF Digital community, will assist in the continued development and reuse of the CEF building blocks across Europe.
