Joinup is an open source tool and an open platform by design. And this is a good image for the nature of what we want to do with Interoperable Europe, because it needs to be open, transparent, and collaborative by design. Likewise, if we don’t make Europe open, interoperable, collaborative by design then it will not work. Joinup provides the proper basis to make this happen. Joinup is not only an open tool, but also a reusable tool itself.

Daniel Melin, Senior Procurement Officer - ICT, Swedish National Procurement Services

Increasing the use of Open Source Software and Open Standards within the public administrations automatically lowers the barrier to entry for everyone, particularly SME, and creates a better playing field for everyone. Interoperability and cross-border solutions are foremost a solution for increased transparency, open government and democracy. Joinup is the perfect tool for this.

Looking at Joinup it struck me that most of the functionality we needed was there. It was more a matter of rebranding the features, deploying a copy of the tool and migrating key data.
