Participate! Public consultation on the European Interoperability Framework

May 19, 2016  |  Digitalisation, Europe

The European Commission is currently revising the European Interoperability Strategy (EIS) and the European Interoperability Framework (EIF), as called for by the Digital Single Market Strategy.

The general objective is to ensure that a coherent vision on interoperability exists in the EU in relation to interactions between the European public administrations and between them and citizens and businesses. This can be done through updating and extending the European Interoperability Framework (EIF) and updating the European Interoperability Strategy (EIS) by reviewing the current Communication “Towards interoperability for European public services”, COM (2010)744.

The review is deemed necessary in order to:

  • align with the recent policy development, i.e. the Digital Single Market (DSM) policy, the revised Directive on the reuse of Public Sector Information, etc.,
  • align with emerging technological trends (cloud computing, big and open data, etc.) and
  • put more focus on the implementation of the EIF rather than the simple alignment with the national approaches on interoperability.

This consultation is part of an overall assessment process for the impact of the EIF revision, described in the Inception Impact Assessment document.

You are kindly invited to give your feedback on this revision by participating at an online public consultation, which will run until 29 June 2016.
