Digital signing

Do you want to digitally sign a document? There are several options:

Digital signing platform (Connective)

Ghent University uses Connective's eSignatures as a signing platform for adding eIDAS-compliant digital signatures. You can upload documents to send to multiple signatories (internal and external).

More information can be found on the Sharepoint Digital Signing (Dutch only)

Please note: currently only UGent employees can use the digital signing platform.

Have you received an email asking to sign a document?

With scanned signature

If you want to digitally sign a document with a scanned signature, you can do so in two ways: via Foxit PDF Editor and via Adobe Reader.

With e-ID

If you want to sign a document yourself with a qualified signature, you can do that with your e-ID. You will need an e-ID-reader and it is only possible if the application is installed locally, so not online via Athena.
