The European Institute of Public Administration - EIPA - with the institutional and financial support of 12 European public partners – invites applications to the fifth European Public Sector Award – EPSA 2015.
Under the overarching theme ‘The Public Sector as Partner for a Better Society’, the EPSA 2015 seeks to showcase and reward those cases from Europe’s public sector that embrace public administrations as partners in integrated and participatory governance approaches to public service delivery, that show increased effectiveness and efficiency in the context of maintaining social cohesion, innovative public management and leadership approaches, as well as sound public finances or intelligent action by public administrations to promote economic growth.
Public administrations submitting applications for EPSA 2015 will become part of an extensive European network of public sector excellence, in which they can benchmark their achievements with their peers, and at the same time learn from each other.
The EPSA 2015 will be presented on the occasion of a high-level event on leading-edge public administration solutions, which will be held on 17-18 November 2015 in Maastricht, the Netherlands, under the auspices of the Luxembourg EU Presidency.
The online application period is open from 5 February until 17 April 2015 (24.00 Brussels local time, CET) at www.epsa2015.eu.
