What is ELISE and what is this action about?

Location information underpins policy assessment, digital services and applications for public administrations, businesses and citizens. However, interoperability barriers hinder the optimal performance of underlying ICT systems and obstruct economic value creation from location information

To address this need, the European Location Interoperability Solutions for e-Government (ELISE) Action, is a package of legal/policy, organisational, semantic and technical interoperability solutions that aim to facilitate more efficient and effective digital cross-border or cross-sector interaction and data re-use in the domain of location information and services.

ELISE builds on top of the EULF and ARE3NA actions funded under the former ISA programme.

Get to know more on ELISE in the ISA2 official website.


What are its objectives and activities?

ELISE aims to break down barriers and promote a coherent and consistent approach to the sharing and reusing of location data across sectors and borders in the context of the digital transformation of public services.

This is done by providing location-related solutions for all levels of the European Interoperability Framework (EIF), through four main output types:

What are the benefits?

Benefits delivered through ELISE include:

  • Cost and time savings by re-using cost-efficient solutions and avoiding duplicated or unnecessary effort, e.g. in data procurement, application development and service delivery.
  • More effective and usable public digital services, through sharing best practices, fostering collaboration, and highlighting optimal business models, processes and technologies.
  • Financial benefits for private sector companies in re-using public sector location data and participating in joint initiatives.
  • Better support to the Policy Lifecycle and analysis through cohesive application of location information at the early policy stages.
  • Improved spatial awareness and analytical skills for Organisation to make best use of available data.
