Background

The Nordic region is high-performing and digitally mature with regards to the public sector. However, it is a strong political imperative in the Nordic countries, as well as in Estonia, Latvia and the United Kingdom, to further improve the efficiency, effectiveness and governance of public services design, infrastructure and delivery by means of additional digitalisation. This includes aspects such as public infrastructure and foundational services, service design, service development and delivery, service automation and self-enablement, etc.

The overarching aim of the call is to combine and integrate knowledge-based, digital innovation efforts with research on the related effects and/or impact on society and end-users, based on factors that enable and drive digital transformation of public sector: emerging technologies; emerging organisational practices; and/or emerging regulatory frameworks and governance mechanisms.

Financial framework

The total funding available under this call is EUR 7.4 million and up to 10 projects may be funded. The maximum amount of funding available per project is EUR 1 million.
