Champagne! With this festive BLSI newsletter edition, let us celebrate the adoption of the Interoperable Europe Act proposal, very good news for our community as the act enshrines key enablers for a smooth implementation of legislation!
What is the proposal about? It has four instruments:
- Interoperable Europe Governance to develop a common strategic agenda for cross-border interoperability, to support the implementation of interoperability solutions, and to run progress monitoring.
- Mandatory interoperability assessments to evaluate the impact of changes in IT systems related to cross-border interoperability in the EU.
- Interoperable Europe Solutions made available on the Interoperable Europe Portal that serves not only as a one-stop-shop for shared and reusable interoperability solutions but as a community platform too.
- Innovation and support measures, including regulatory sandboxes and GovTech cooperation, to promote policy experimentation, developing skills and the scaling up of interoperability solutions for reuse.
Read our article Why is the Interoperable Europe Act proposal important for digital-ready policymaking and our community? to discover those elements of the proposal which are key for our digital-ready agenda.
An important goal of the Interoperable Europe Act is to create a structured and co-owned EU cooperation framework.
In the journey of making this proposal a reality, we invite you to spread the news to all actors around you who can contribute to some of its instruments, and we encourage you to share your views in the co-creation workshops that are to come.
Your contributions are the heart of interoperability. Therefore, we are glad to invite you to our first BLSI webinar in 2023 to explore together the implications and opportunities that arise from the Interoperable Europe Act for our community, how to create a more co-creative and interactive Joinup space, as well as gather training needs and topics you are interested in! Do not miss out the opportunity by registering here!
We regularly update our community page with other events that you might find interesting. Among the most recent ones you can find the EU Open-Source Policy Summit 2023 and the IRI§23 International Legal Informatics Symposium 2023.
More food for thought is waiting for you on Joinup with a report on API strategy essentials for Public Sector Innovation: Technical perspective from the JRC, as well as a study on Drafting legislation in the era of AI and digitisation from Monica Palmirani of the University of Bologna. Lots of reasons to revisit our revamped BLSI Joinup page, where you can watch our trainings, learn how to enhance digital-ready policymaking, how technology can support legislation or how to streamline regulatory reporting!
Please don’t forget that the Joinup platform is yours. You can populate it with your findings, studies, events etc.!
