Our goal is to optimise the conditions for the development of cross-border eGovernment services provided to citizens and businesses regardless of their country of origin. This includes the development of an environment which promotes interoperability of systems and key enablers such as eSignatures and eIdentification. Services accessible across the EU strengthen the digital single market and complement existing legislation in domains like eIdentification, eProcurement, eJustice, eHealth, mobility and social security, whilst delivering concrete benefits to citizens, businesses and governments in Europe. The Commission will lead by example in further implementing eGovernment within its organisation.
The objective is to increase the take-up of eGovernment services: the target is that by 2015 50% of citizens and 80% of businesses should use eGovernment services.
A new e-Government Action Plan will be launched in 2016, as also foreseen by the recently adopted Digital Single Market Strategy for Europe.
