LIFO 2019 Italy


This factsheets shows that Italy's scores are slightly below the European average across the five assessed focus areas of the EULF Blueprint, with only “Governance, Partnership and Capabilities” above the European average.

Italy performed slightly below the average in the focus areas “Policy and Strategy Alignment”, Digital Government Integration”, “Standardisation and Reuse” and “Return on Investment”.

In these focus areas, a larger margin of improvement is required, in particular for the use of location-enabled services and data for the provision of cross-sector and cross-border digital public services. 

In the “Governance, Partnership and Capabilities” focus area, Italy displays a particularly high score for the organisation of initiatives that raise awareness and develop geospatial skills. 

Italy has participated also in LIFO 2020. For the 2020 factsheet, click here.
