Once-only in Greece! PAG Network Meeting on May 17th + 18th in Heraklion

Mon, 7 May 2018

On May 17-18, 2018 the PAG Network Meeting hosted by the European Social Fund) will take place in Heraklion, Greece. The topic of the conference is 'The only once principle and reduction of administrative burden'. 

"A modern State, aiming to provide its citizens with good services, means that Public Administration remains neutral, reliable, functional and efficient. The concept of the OOP focuses on reducing administrative burden for individuals and businesses by re-organising public sector internal processes, instead of making citizens and business users adjust to existing procedures. It is based on the assumption that collecting information is more expensive and burdensome than sharing already collected information. Hence, this principle proposes to collect information only once and then share this information, respecting other constraints, such as regulations. So far, many European Union countries have started to implement the once-only principle at a national level, while its cross-border implementation is still fragmented and limited to a very few services." (PAG Network Meeting 2018 Agenda) 

SCOOP4C's project coordinator, Prof. Maria A. Wimmer from the University of Koblenz-Landau will present the state of play of once-only implementations in EU member states.
