Welcome to the eighth edition of the TOOP newsletter!
The last months have been particularly busy in regards to piloting activities in the project. With ten connectathons held since our last newsletter edition, significant progress has been made. By now there are twelve Member States that successfully implemented TOOP components, transiting to the active piloting phase. More partners will join during next weeks.
Furthermore, we continue close cooperation with the CEF Digital Preparatory Action to ensure the sustainability of the TOOP assets and support the development of the OOP technical architecture. At the fifth Meeting of the Single Digital Gateway coordination group, the blueprint of the OOP system was presented to the Representatives of the Member States and associated countries to foster further discussion on the architectural components and technology options. It builds to a large extent on the TOOP experiences and so we are happy to support the work of the CEF Team with our knowledge.
In this newsletter, you can also read about important events, attended by the project, which provided an excellent chance to demonstrate TOOP results. By presentations and interesting exhibitions, we attracted the attention of numerous visitors and high-level EC representatives.
Keep an eye on our social media channels for news on the testing progress, sustainability plans and OOP related events! dedicated to the ‘once-only’ principle, so as not to miss any relevant information!

TOOP Project Coordinator
On 25th October the OOP technical system blueprint was presented to the Representatives of the Member States and associated countries during the 5th Meeting of the single digital gateway coordination group. The blueprint provides an overview of different architectural options to make the technical system reality. The architecture is heavily based on reuse of existing CEF Building Blocks.
TOOP is at the final – testing stage of the project. During regular virtual meetings, so called Connectathons, project partners test data consumer and data provider capabilities by the exchange of valid data. With more and more Member States, piloting partners participating and the new connections, successful results increase. See the map to check successful connections in the General Business Mobility pilot.
On October, 21st the TOOP project was presented at the annual conference on
semantic interoperability – SEMIC 2019, attended by nearly 200 participants. TOOP results were widely presented by project partners from Slovenia and Sweden. Visitors could get an insight into project work at the exhibition booth.
The “online ship and crew certificates” pilot, presented at the booth during the Digital Transport Days attracted a number of visitors. TOOP was honoured to welcome at the stand the European Commissioner for Transport, Violeta Bulc and Director-General for Mobility and Transport Henrik Hololei.
