Our vision is an adaptive, collaborative, efficient and responsive DG CONNECT based on values of collaboration, openness, as well as creativity. We also want to contribute to fulfilment of the same vision at Commission level.
To enable the cultural change towards fully open knowledge sharing across the DG through tools, processes and strategies that help the DG to deliver better on its mission.
Since its re-organisation, DG CONNECT has undertaken a fundamental shift from its traditional focus on 3 areas: policy, regulation and research, towards structures and working methods that consider these 3 areas of activity in a more integrated way. Building on this cultural change, we will add to the existing tools a set of new collaboration and knowledge management approaches to reinforce effective in-house knowledge sharing and collaboration.
In particular, a pilot internal social collaboration platform (called "CONNECTED") has been implemented but its full uptake requires close monitoring as well as further take-up actions, both within the DG and across the Commission.
DG CONNECT also shares its experience across the Commission and aims to lead by example in transforming the way the European institutions serve the citizens.
Recommendations to DG CONNECT's management on working methods and tools to allow decision-makers in the areas of policy, regulation and research to take account of each other's knowledge and concerns more effectively.
