The prize was awarded by a jury comprised of experts in ICT, Public Administration, Academia and Research. The accolade under the patronage of the European Commission honours outstanding achievements in interoperability at regional, national and European levels.
EUCARIS got classified among 15 other contestants as the most outstanding project in the field of interoperability in eGovernment. The prize was awarded on the basis of four criteria, on which EUCARIS obtained the best overall score: innovativeness, practical results, impact and transferability.Â
EUCARIS is a cooperation between 19 European countries in the field of information exchange of vehicles and driving licences. The system is currently used within the framework of the EUCARIS Treaty, the EU PrÃ¼m Council Decision and several bilateral agreements (mostly on cross-border enforcement of traffic violations).
The network is open for new initiatives of data exchange between different countries. More information on EUCARIS can be found on the relevant ePractice case at the following page: http://www.epractice.eu/cases/eucaris.
The competition has been organised within the framework of the 2nd European Summit on Interoperability in the iGovernment (ESIIG 2). The organiser of the ESIIG 2 Summit, the Lazio region, launched the second edition of the iG Award (iG 2.0) initiative in collaboration with ePractice.eu. The competition was open to a wide spectrum of participants, from public authorities at local, regional, national and European levels to stakeholders of the private sector experts in the ICT field and in the Knowledge and Information Society.
