Action 26: MS to implement European Interoperability Framework

Article

What is the problem? No internal virtual market due to interoperability problems

In the virtual world barriers against the internal market are raising, mainly due to interoperability issues.

Why is EU action needed? European Commission encouraging Member States to adopt interoperability laws

At the end of 2010 the Commission adopted a communication on the "European Interoperability Framework". The next step is: Member States adopting a national interoperability framework, in line with the European one. To this end, the programme "Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations" will be monitoring the progress within the Member States, while in parallel will implement the European Framework.

What has the Commission done?

In 2010 the Commission adopted the European Interoperability Strategy and a European Interoperability Framework (EIF) as annexes of the Communication "Towards interoperability for European public services". By 2013 Member States should align their national interoperability frameworks to the EIF. (See action 24).

What will the Commission do?

The Commission will assist Member States through supporting actions, including awareness raising and exchange of information on national interoperability frameworks.

It has launched a study on the needs and costs benefits of cross-border services and the existing barrier. The results of the first CIP ICT PSP Large Scale Pilots are being deployed across Member States. Details of their deployment are available on the DAE implementation web site.

 

The Europeone e-Government Conference will bring together experts from the Commission, the Member States, the Candidate Countries and the Private Sector. The conference will focus on issues related to interoperability, key enablers, cross border services, trust and privacy, new technologies tendencies, and e-procurement. Experts will discuss and exchange ideas/experiences on how to empower European citizens and businesses in order to improve their mobility across Europe. Discussions will also focus on how Governments are transforming in order to be more efficient, productive and push economic growth in these difficult global times. The event is organized within the context of the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of EU.

This meeting is a one-day event organised by SSEDIC in Paris the day before the The European e-Identity Management Conference 2012 in cooperation with EEMA and other identity initiatives, projects and partners. Many European funded projects are working on the challenging topic of e-ID and each one is devoting an enormous amount of effort and time to their own activities and focussing on achieving their goals. The SIIIC intention is to give to all projects the added value of sharing knowledge and results for collaboration and exchange of views with others in the same space, and working in a collaborative way for giving to the European Commission the best result. This conference provides each organisation or project with the opportunity to give an overview on their current activities and future plans; additionally a substantial amount of time will allocated to networking and collaboration, with space for practical workshops which can be arranged in an impromptu way or a more planned approach.
