The proposed project will enable public administration in Western Balkan Countries (WBC) to reach higher productivity and equity by first establishing of an "We-Go" Interoperability Framework with focus on transactional cross border services and providing best practices for corresponding transactional application domains delivered as trial prototypes in order to enable follow-up implementation projects; second, by establishing "We-Go" Academies offering training courses as accompanying measures for the selected applications as well as foundation for future regional eGov course program deployments; third, by establishing of an "We-Go" Knowledge Net built by a system of federated registries which will ensure sustainability and further improvements beyond the end of the project.
Services addressed by the project include eCustoms - New Computerised Transit System, eFinance - VAT Information Exchange System, eJustice cross border cases - Automation of Court Procedures, European Companies Register and European Land Information System, eAdministration - Electronic Filing System and eTrade Facilitation for European waste transport.
The outlined Coordination Action will support the networking and coordination of eGovernment research and innovation activities in WBC together with European partners, building on the Austrian activities which made the European Commission's i2010 and especially eGovernment and eServices a priority during its tenure of the Presidency of Council in the first half of 06. Austria organizes a series of events and initiatives together with the European Commission, with other countries and with academic and industry partners with a specific focus on WBC.
The consortium combines the strength of leading EU and WBC governmental institutions, public service solution providers, applied research organisations and selected business associations to ensure the leverage effect intended by the coordination action.
