Organised by European Commission

The event will provide insight into the results and the future follow-up of the PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) project. Interested parties will be provided with examples of pilot achievements and other first-hand information about PEPPOL. The aim is to show decision makers of the European Commission, Member States, public sector entities, suppliers and service providers the long term sustainability of PEPPOL through specific initiatives.
The PEPPOL conference in Rome will focus on plans and initiatives for ensuring continuity of the positive results of the project and for establishing the future governance, elaborating on plans for OpenPEPPOL and the PEPPOL long term sustainability roadmap.
As part of the Large Scale Pilot projects (LSPs) of the European Commission, PEPPOL is building the basis for seamless cross-border eGovernment services in the single market, to realize the goals of the Digital Agenda for Europe. The LSPs were created under the Information and Communication Technologies Policy Support Programme (ICTPSP), a part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) of the European Commission. The CIP ICTPSP aims at stimulating smart sustainable and inclusive growth by accelerating the wider uptake and best use of innovative digital technologies and content by citizens, governments and businesses. It provides EU funding to support the realization of the Digital Agenda for Europe.
