Innovative public services for citizens and businesses
The digital transformation of government will benefit citizens and businesses, save administrations money and create a new marketplace for public service applications. Through its Horizon 2020 programme and Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), the European Commission has sought to overcome obstacles to rolling out eGovernment services, and also provide the tools for administrations to deliver new digital services across departments and across borders. Here we showcase the results of seven EU-funded projects, and examine exactly how public services stand to benefit. In... addition, new commercial opportunities will be opened up through the creation of a vibrant eGovernment application marketplace.
