Design, build, and pilot with EBSI

Become a part of EBSI's Early Adopters Programme and bring your use case to life. This opportunity allows you to contribute to an expanding ecosystem by designing, building and piloting your project on EBSI.

Hands on!

To pilot your use case on the EBSI Pilot network, you are required to submit the requested information and accept the Pilot legal package as an EBSI Application Service Provider via the Acceptance form.

The legal package specifies Pilot network participation terms, the roles and responsibilities of each actor and personal data processing rules. Acceptance of this package is only required for participation in the EBSI Pilot network.


Completing the legal onboarding steps above is mandatory before proceeding to the technical onboarding, detailed in the Build your solution section.
