    In this paper, we prove a H1-coercive estimate for differential forms of arbitrary degrees in semi-convex domains of the Euclidean space. The key result is an integral identity involving a boundary term in which the Weingarten matrix of the boundary intervenes, established for any Lipschitz domain Ω⊆ℝnwhose outward unit normal v belongs to Ln-11(∂Ω), the Ln-1-based Sobolev space of order one on ∂Ω.
