As of January 2016, the OpenNCP governance model changes in the way it has been foreseen and prepared by the EXPAND project.
The OpenNCP project shifts under the direct responsibility of the European Commission, Directorate General for Health and Food Safety, DG SANTE. The goal is to move the epSOS e-health pilot OpenNCP into the global European "Connecting Europe Facility" (CEF) framework project under the umbrella of a "CEF Digital Service Infrastructure", the e-Health DSI.
The project is dedicated to remain open-source and the governance is designated to be driven or influenced by the OpenNCP community and health care professionals, in cooperation with the European Commission.
In order to streamline the interaction between the project executive and the community so called Task Forces are created each covering a specific subject. Their aim is to steer evolution and integration tasks. The Task Forces are (mainly) open and anyone interested can join as active participant or observer.
