ISA² - Interoperability solutions for public administrations, businesses and citizens

Results of the EIF consultation


The Commission ran an open public consultation on the revision of the European Interoperability Framework (EIF) from 6 April 2016 to 29 June 2016. This consultation in the form of an online questionnaire in EN, FR and DE targeted citizens, businesses / private organisations, public administrations, and research centres, academic institutions, standardisation organisations and businesses supplying services to public administrations. It sought to detect needs and problems faced by stakeholders with regards to interoperability and the implementation of the EIF and EIS, identify expected revision's impacts, and collect feedback on the EU added value and coherence of the initiative.
