Moreover, 10 PEPPOL Access Points operated by the beneficiaries of this Action will be adapted, tested and validated in order to enable the use of the EN corresponding syntaxes when exchanging invoices via the Access Points in compliance with the AS4 eSENS profile.


Become fully compliant with the EN and provide a scalable solution based on the eInvoicing demand

Project Activities

Project Management

Coordination is managed by Universitat de València, this entity will monitor the project progress and will be involved in the administrative and financial management, quality assurance and internal dissemination of knowledge. Furthermore, the coordinator, with collaboration of the other beneficiaries, will supervise any contact with external organisations, present all types of reports and deliverables as requested, and manage conflicts by applying the foreseen procedures while constantly cooperating with the project’s technical management.

Project Implementation

Each EDI Provider will design its own implementation by analysing the EU Directives, Regulations and Standards, to better identify its specific needs according to their national contexts. The participants will carry out the implementation and upgrade of its eInvoicing solutions separately and will develop the necessary tools to adapt their systems. The implementation of this task will allow all eInvoicing solutions to be ready to exchange, validate and process electronic invoices in the required syntaxes. During the whole implementation, the coordinator and the technical manager will be assisting the EDI providers by giving technical and legal support.

Interoperability and Conformance Tests

The interoperability and conformance tests seek to guarantee the quality of the results obtained during implementation, allowing providers to start using the CEF eInvoicing Building Block. The participants will first adapt, test and validate 10 PEPPOL Access Points based on the profiles needed in order to enable them for the required syntaxes. Afterwards, each participant will run an interoperability test for their solution and corresponding use cases, and will use the web form of the CEF conformance testing service to validate it. The final goal of this activity is to promote the collaboration between participants for cross-border transactions.

Project Dissemination

The goal of this activity is the dissemination and exploitation of the project results. The coordinating institution will define a strategic communication plan focused on researchers, entities and other stakeholders interested on the European eInvoicing Building Block. This website was created under this activity, and it will be complemented with the use of all participant´s Social Media, SEO strategies, own websites, and the publication of news concerning to the project´s progress.
