The Commission facilitated the exchange of views with the Member States to identify which new cross-border services could be piloted under the CIP ICT PSP programme and which services could be rolled out in 27 Member States. In April 2013 the Commission launched eSens, a new Large Scale Pilot on Basic Cross Sector Services. This Pilot focuses on all the building blocks developed by other Large Scale Pilots.
eGovernment can support the further construction of the internal market by facilitating entrepreneurs to set up and run a business anywhere in Europe independently of their original location, and allowing citizens to study, work, reside and retire anywhere in the European Union through the delivery of seamless, interoperable and sustainable cross-border services.
The Commission supports the piloting of cross-border eGovernment services through the ICT Policy Support Programme under the CIP, in particular via Large Scale Pilots.
The Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations (ISA) programme is an important instrument that could analyse and suggest ways to ensure the sustainability of common services and generic tools developed and demonstrated in the Large Scale Pilots.
