Have your say: Interoperability, Sharing & Reuse.

Sharing and reuse is an interoperability booster. It increases digital collaboration with entails better service quality at lower cost. It is what European public administrations look for.

In support to this need, the European Commission has put in public consultation a draft framework comprising recommendations for public administrations, on how to share and reuse their ICT solutions.

Make your voice heard, help us improve the proposed framework by replying to the consultation by 29 June 2016.

It should be noted that once final, the Sharing and reuse framework, will be referred to by the overarching European Interoperability Framework (EIF) also under revision.

The EIF is currently open for comments through another public consultation to which you may want to contribute by visiting the relevant page here

The European Commission supports interoperability activities through a dedicated program.
