CEF Building Blocks Presented at Swedish National Financial Management Authority, Stockholm
On 22 May 2017, the Swedish National Financial Management Authority (ESV) the entity responsible for developing public-sector financial management, organised a full-day national seminar about eDelivery in Stockholm, Sweden.
The event brought together representatives from Government Offices, municipalities and other Swedish entities.
As Digital becomes the 'new normal', there are common challenges that all EU Member States face when trying to deliver better online services. The adoption of the CEF building blocks (eDelivery, eID, eSignature, eInvoicing and eTranslation) not only helps accelerate the creation of new online services that work across-borders, but also lowers their cost, reduces duplication and promotes simplification.
The opportunities generated by implementing the CEF building blocks in national and European projects are too great to be overlooked. Sweden is aware of this and wants to move forward in a coordinated fashion. In this spirit, this event helped promote cooperation among different sectoral initiatives already making use of eDelivery in Sweden - eProcurement, Business Registers (part of the BRIS project), Social Security (part of the EESSI project), etc.
Finally, staff from the European Commission presented the services offered by the European Commission to support the adoption of the building blocks and also the grant-funding available under the CEF programme.
The European Commission is providing up to €0.5 million to support the adoption of eDelivery in Europe. CEF funding covers up to 75% of the costs of implementation. The call has recently opened, but be careful not to wait too long, as applications close on 21 September 2017. Find out all you need to know here.
