and local public administrations


What is it?

The seminar on “Supporting the implementation of eGovernment at regional and local level” was a one day event, organised by the European Commission (DG CONNECT) with the aim to help accelerate the digital transformation of governments in the EU.
The core of the event was to help regional and local public administrations implement the eGovernment Action Plan 2016-2020 through knowledge exchange on financial issues as well as through presenting available tools.

During the event, various funding mechanisms available for the eGovernment Action Plan were presented. The “Di@vgeia” (European Structural & Investment Funds) and “Your Data Stories” (Horizon2020) initiatives were put on display as two examples of possible synergies between EU funds. YDS’s coordinator Anna Triantafillou gave a short presentation on the project’s idea and progress to approximately 100 participants, many of which were representatives of regional and local public administrations.
