The 'European Interoperability Framework for pan-European eGovernment Services' now available in printed version

EIF brochure

The EIF is the reference document on interoperability for the IDABC programme. It is the result of an extensive consultation process with the Member States and thus represents the highest ranking module for the implementation of European eGovernment services.

This first version provides a series of recommendations and defines generic standards with regard to organizational, semantic and technical aspects of interoperability, offering a comprehensive set of principles for European co-operation in eGovernment. The EIF will be periodically revised to take into account the latest developments.

The EIF is the first publication using the logo and visual identity of the new IDABC programme.
