Local and regional administrations have an important role both in modernising administrations and services in areas of importance for society, and in taking responsibility for directly providing their citizens with services shaped to meet expectations in an increasingly digitalised world.

The European Commission supports the acceleration of the digital transformation of governments at all levels – national, regional and local through the EU eGovernment Action Plan 2016-2020.

This guide aims at supporting the implementation of eGovernment at local and regional level, and touches on issues such as setting up a strategy, infrastructure, open data and open services, public sector innovation, funding opportunities and available awards to foster eGovernment. It also contains concrete recommendation for opening up data and open decision-making, tool, learning platforms and many useful links.
