As part of its R&D initiatives, Correos is participating in several European projects, this includes:

  • Leveraging eID in the Private Sector (LEPS).[1] Project developed through a Connecting Europe Facility grant (CEF Telecom) from September 2017 to November 2018. This project seeks to simplify the connection of private services with European public identification nodes (eIDAS nodes).
  • Lightweight Infrastructure for Global Heterogeneous Trust management in support of an open ecosystem of stakeholders and trust schemes (LIGHTest).[2] Project developed through a grant Horizon 2020 (H2020) from September 2016 to September 2019.

Correos participates as an industrial partner, developing two pilots of its digital services that serve as proof of integration with the resulting infrastructure.
