EU4Digital is organising the first joint working meeting with Ukraine and Poland on 2 July to introduce and set out the next steps for implementation of its eTrade pilot for the eDelivery solution for cross-border data exchange.
At the beginning of 2020 official confirmation was received from the European Commission regarding the chosen pilot countries for the EU-EaP eDelivery solution pilot – Poland and Ukraine. Following ongoing discussions and consultations with representatives from the pilot countries, the first meeting with all participating parties will take place, organised virtually by the EU4Digital Facility.
The main objective of the meeting is to introduce the eDelivery solution, pilot concept, governance structure and other relevant aspects of the piloting.
The EU4Digital expert team, together with nominated specialists, representatives from selected countries as well as other participants, will discuss the relevant aspects of successful implementation of the eDelivery pilot. Moreover, EU4Digital experts will present the approach of planned legal analysis, overview the timeline of the eDelivery pilot, current progress and together with participating parties agree on the next steps.
About the pilot
The cross-border eTrade pilot will test the ground to exchange electronic invoices in selected Eastern partner countries using established EU-wide solution and standards.
During the eDelivery solution piloting, feedback from participating companies and government institutions will be collected on how to improve the process of live solution implementation. The findings and recommendations (legal, organisational, technical, process related) will be prepared and shared with interested stakeholders. Additionally, site visits for Eastern partner country representatives to observe the piloted solution and replicate it in their country will be organised.
