EIF Toolbox

EIF BannerWhat is EIF iconGlossary icon




The EIF Toolbox is designed as a guidance for national public administrations to equip them with the tools necessary to align their National Interoperability Frameworks (NIFs) with the European Interoperability Framework (EIF) in order to promote interoperability at national and European level.

The structure of the toolbox provides a complete and holistic approach on interoperability and allows users to access information and reusable solutions or components to tackle specific aspects of interoperability when designing a new digital solution. The needed information is accessible through different paths and from different entry points (i.e. all recommendations are linked to relevant EIF pillars and relevant supporting solutions, the solutions’ page can also be viewed per EIF pillars, etc.).

Furthermore and taking into consideration the diverse professional and educational background of its users, the EIF Toolbox contains guidance documents on the theoretical background of the framework (EIF Pillars), offers information that highlights the implementation needs of the EIF’s 47 recommendations and 12 principles, and provides operational solutions covering the alignment and implementation aspects of this exercise.

The EIF toolbox is a dynamic solution and will evolve over time emphasising on practical success implementation stories, thus bridging the gap between public administrations and interoperable digital public services.


* Disclaimer: We are currently updating and improving the legal initiatives that implement the EIF Toolbox, hence be advised that the related information might change over time. Thank you for your understanding.
