Putting citizens first and involving them through co-creation in designing digital public services is a key opportunity for improving public service availability, quality and efficiency in cities and regions.
On June 19, 2019 the e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG) officially published a new policy document titled “National Nodes – Getting organised; how far are we?”. The aim is to present a representative picture of the European e-Infrastructure landscape at its current state and to provide, on the basis of this analysis, a number of recommendations on how to efficiently implement the e-Infrastructure Commons in the form of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
As part of the next long-term EU budget – the Multiannual Financial Framework – the Commission has proposed the Digital Europe programme, the EU’s programme focused on building the strategic digital capacities of the EU and on facilitating the wide deployment of digital technologies, to be used by Europe’s citizens and businesses. With a planned overall budget of €9.2 billion, it will shape and support the digital transformation of Europe’s society and economy.
The ‘Once-Only’ Principle (OOP) is a key enabler for simplifying administrative procedures. The idea behind this principle is that public authorities should not request information from businesses and citizens that they already possess or can retrieve from national databases. In some European countries, this is already an established practice. It not only saves millions of euros but it also makes interaction between authorities, business and citizens much easier. However, currently this works only within a country. The next step is to open up those systems to citizens and businesses of other countries.

The successful projects include participation of entities from all EU Member States and Switzerland.
