Through the delivery of five pilots in five cities: Bremerhaven (DE), Lecce (IT), Novi Sad (RS), Santander (ES) and Stockport (UK), the project will seek to demonstrate how cloud based services can be used to facilitate the fictional scenario of a family moving from one member state to another and the typical complexities that such a move could entail. It will take into account administrative requirements such as registering for local taxes or providing access to utilities through the use of a dedicated cloud based infrastructure.
At the end of the 30 month pilot project, the 12 partners hope to deliver a common platform, transferable methodology and associated business model that will facilitate increased adoption of cloud based public services throughout the EU. It will also seek to identify and address key policy and ethical constraints that could impact the replication of the final solution. If successful, this project offers a step forward for EU cloud capabilities with significant benefits not only for Public organisations at a National and Regional level but also for SME’s and citizens alike.
