Once-only Conference in Berlin on 28th November 2017

Tue, 28 Nov 2017

With regards to public sector digitisation the once-only principle (OOP) aims at collecting information from citizens and businesses only once and at enabling public administrations to internally share this information  - even across borders -  to avoid duplication and to reduce administrative burden. 

The conference on the once-only principle for citizens and businesses is a joint event of the two EU funded projects SCOOP4C and TOOP. Both projects investigate the implementation of the OOP in Europe on a cross-border level. While SCOOP4C is analysing how the OOP can be implemented in public services for citizens, TOOP will pilot OOP implementations for businesses.

The joint event aims at creating awareness about the importance of the OOP for administrative burden reduction. It demonstrated the findings of SCOOP4C and TOOP over the first year and showcase cross-border OOP solutions for citizens and businesses. In subsequent group discussions, participants and speakers will investigate how the presented cross-border OOP solutions can be spread across Europe to implement the once-only principle, and what drivers, enablers but also barriers they had or still have to face to exploit the full potentials of OOP in dedicated domains. 

At 7 pm, there will be a joint dinner with members of the National E-Governance Competence Center (NEGZ). This as also a good opportunity to discuss the future of European E-Government together. Participants of the once-only-conference are also very welcome to participate at the NEGZ conference taking place at Bundespressehaus at 29th November 2017. The NEGZ conference will be in German only.
