HANDS has been voted the best communicating eTEN project of the year 2007
Professionals in eGovernment, eInclusion and eHealth have elected HANDS as the eTEN project of the year 2007. The election was open in ePractice.eu between 21 December 2007 and 21 January 2008.
Having received almost one third of all the votes submitted by professionals in eGovernment, eInclusion and eHealth, HANDS is an online service designed to facilitate and ameliorate communication between citizens and Public Bodies. Second came eBooks on Demand (EOD / DoD), a service network making millions of books available online due to the close cooperation between 13 libraries from eight European countries. EUropean PAYment circuit (EU Pay), a multi-channel payment collection mechanism for public authorities, was third. Thank you to those who voted and congratulation to the winners!
The eTEN European Community programme (2000-2006) supported the deployment of trans-European e-services in the public interest. Communication of the eTEN projects has always been considered a very important promotional tool which helped increase the reach and impact of the projects, disseminate experiences and good practices, locate potential partners and attract investors. In 2004 the eTEN project of the month contest was launched as part of the programme's effort to increase the visibility and impact of the projects. The criteria for this election are the consortiumâ€™s capabilities to communicate the projectâ€™s goals and achievements as well as the usability of the projectâ€™s website.
This year, the online election took place on the ePractice.eu portal. The election decides which project communicates best about its service. Voters had to register on the portal, visit each of the projectsâ€™ good practice cases and websites and decide which one presents its objectives and service ambitions in the clearest and most understandable manner.
