Build, connect, taste!

Ice cream and digital public services at CeBIT 2014

What's better than an ice cream as a welcome during the five sunny days in Hannover at CeBIT? The world’s leading IT event for decision-makers in Hannover (Germany) hosted again the five Large Scale Pilots projects (LSPs), in the Public Sector Parc, in the e-Sens booth, now collecting all further steps of the projects under a single umbrella. The LSPs showcased their solutions through devices such as a Touch Table, an interactive map of Europe and radio-frequency identification (RFID) Legos, which could be combined to illustrate the different "building blocks" and domains of application offered by the projects.

The projects used a unique attraction to synthetize the methodology and rephrase their motto (build-connect-grow): a free ice-cream bar, in which you could make up the ice cream you desire by combining different tastes. In the same way the components of the different projects can be combined to obtain other cross border digital services (#buildconnecttaste, #buildconnectgrow).

Hundreds of young people joined in to listen to the information provided by the project teams, enjoying the visualisation of the concepts. This facilitated the understanding of the European added value of the whole set of projects and their impact on our lives.

The recently adopted Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) regulation will allow to connect Europe's public services through digital bridges for the benefit of citizens, businesses and public administrations. The LSP projects will pave the way towards a number of cross-border digital service infrastructures foreseen in CEF via the provision of consolidated building blocks piloted in the Member States with industry and other partners.

If you missed the ice cream, you can still learn more about the project in the online magazine "Build Connect".

Build, Connect, Take-up!
What comes after the Lego bricks and the ice-creams?
Even if I missed the first-hand experience of a build, connect, taste ice cream, I am very happy with the attention for e-SENS and the other European Large Scale Pilots at CeBIT 2014. This is all about getting digital cross-border public services in Europe up and running (so that you can get a real taste of it). They are assembled from the various building block services developed by the Large Scale Pilots.

You all took a big joint effort to realise successful presence at CeBIT. Well done! A good example of collaborative service delivery and participative communication.

Now let's build on the momentum and pick-up pace: businesses and also the SMEs have to get involved in e-SENS. e-SENS should give them a broad set of reusable building blocks services of the highest quality. Industry and SMEs can take-up them up and create new services, creating new business opportunities.

It can be anything: services for students to enrol online into universities in another Member State, tourists to receive special medication during their holidays through online prescription, consumers resolving a dispute while doing eCommerce in the Union, supply chain logistics and smart procurement across Europe, and so. I am looking forward to seeing every more examples appearing on your webpages.

Once matured, the European Commission intends to support deployment of building blocks under the Connecting Europe Facility. The Commission wants to make sure that there are no digital borders in Europe and make the Digital Single Market real for all of us.
