During the final session of the conference, the organisers announced the winners of the Sharing and Reuse Awards contest organised by the European Commission under the ISA² Programme. The aim of the contest was to raise awareness of the benefits of sharing and reusing IT solutions in the public sector.
A total of €100,000 was awarded to public administrations that have shared their IT solutions and whose solutions have a potential for wider reuse in Europe.
First and second prizes of €15,000 and €10,000 respectively were awarded to the winning teams in each of the following four categories:
- Successful case of collaboration to develop and provide common IT solutions across borders;
- Successful case of collaboration to develop and provide common IT solutions at the national level;
- Successful case of collaboration to develop and provide common IT solutions at the regional level;
- Successful case of collaboration to develop and provide common IT solutions at the local level.
The Sharing and Reuse Awards contest was open for submissions between 8 July and 28 October 2016, and public administrations were invited to submit their solution via a registration form. All 118 submitted solutions were screened against the eligibility criteria between November 2016 and January 2017. The solutions that fulfilled the eligibility criteria are currently being evaluated by the Evaluation Committee consisting of staff members working for the European Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament.
