    Digital Trust Movement
    The European Signature Dialog is a platform of major European electronic signature providers. The first European Signature Dialog took place on the 1st and 2nd of June 2017 in the heart of Europe - Vienna, attended by eleven countries.

    Cross-border interconnection
    On the initiative of A-Trust, qualified trust service provider in Austria, a joint voice of leading European stakeholders was created to tackle the need for consistency between EU and national requirements and make Europe a strong player in authentication and cybersecurity.
