To achieve maximum reusability of personal data and increase the acceptance and visibility of Europass documents, Europass provides a public set of web services.
These services offer conversion methods between various file formats supported by Europass. Europass encourages integration with systems and environments that maintain a repository of personal data such as:
- job matching services (e.g. job portals, employment services);
- promotion services (e.g. career guidance, human resource management);
- profile maintaining services (e.g. blog publishing tools, social networking sites).
Supported file formats are: Europass XML, Adobe PDF with Europass XML attachment, Europass JSON, Microsoft Word 97-2003, OpenDocument v2 Text, HTML, HR-XML, Adobe PDF with HR-XML attachment.
Europass provides two types of web services: a REST full web API, and a way to populate the online editor with data coming from a remote system, which we simply call Remote upload.
