Greek Interoperability Case among the best 3 eGovernment Solutions in European eGovernment Awards 2009

The Greek Case ERMIS - "Interoperability Standards and Infrastructures for Service Transformation" was among the 3 Nominees for the 1st Prize in the category of administrative efficiency and effectiveness.

In the ceremony held on 19th November 2009, in the Finals of this year European eGovernment Awards, in Malmoe Sweden, 3 cases made it to the final round in category 3, among 27 finalists and more than 180 submitted cases from all over Europe. And the nominees are:

- The Portuguese Case (Licenses an Permits through ATM Networks) – Winner of the 1st Prize
- The Greek Case (Interoperability and Service Transformation)
- The Austrian Case (Electronic Procurement Systems)

The Greek case was presented by members of the Ministry of Interior, Decentralisation and Electronic Governance, the Greek Interoperability Centre / National Technical University of Athens and Unisystems SA.

The selection was made by a jury of independent experts coming from all over Europe and presenting a variety of backgrounds, to ensure the broadest possible coverage in terms of specific knowledge. Key selection criteria to assess the projects were: the level of innovation; the impact and relevance in relation to the objectives of the Awards (increasing mobility and improving access to public services for businesses and citizens in the EU, making public services and administrative processes simpler and more efficient); the potential for good-practice sharing; the management and communication approach outlined.

Next eGovernment Awards Organisation is bound to take place in Poland, in 2011.
