IDABC EIF Info Day 2008 - Brussels


The European Commission, Directorate General for Informatics (IDABC), organised a special event aiming to present and inform on the new version of the European Interoperability Framework. This EIF Info Day took place on 25 June 2008 in Brussels.

The European Interoperability Framework (EIF) supports the European Union's strategy of providing user-centred eGovernment services by facilitating, at a pan-European level, the interoperability of services and systems between public administrations, as well as between administrations and the public (citizens, businesses). The EIF defines the general rules and principles for collaboration on interoperability between Member States and European Institutions. It is the highest ranking paper among the IDABC interoperability documents.

The new EIF will represent an official Commission position with the publication of a Communication from the Commission to the Council and to the Parliament.

IDABC is currently revising the European Interoperabilty Framework (EIF).

The EIF Info Day focused on the newly updated version of the European Interoperability Framework, aiming to inform on the developments implemented since the original version.

Mr Francisco García Morán, Director General for Informatic at the European Commission, opened the Info Day and introduced the main achievements in the area of Interoperability as well as the remaining challenges to overcome.

The draft of the new version of the EIF will be available on this site in July 2008, inviting external stakeholders to comment on it.

The event was held at the following venue:

Tour Madou - Salle 0/AUDITORIUM
Place Madou 1 - 1210 Brussels
