Commission announces €13.7 investment in cross-border digital public services
Following the success of a series of projects, the European Commission has announced a €13.7 million investment to further develop cross-border digital public services to make living, working, travelling, studying and doing business across borders easier. The investment wil be used for the new “e-SENS” project (Electronic Simple European Networked Services). The objective of the new project is to consolidate and improve the work done by the previous projects and to expand their value to new and more areas in order to strengthen the functioning of the digital single market in Europe. It will also link up national digital services for citizens who visit a different Member State. EU citizens will for example be able to complete the registration procedures to set up a company or register a marriage from another country or get medications from a pharmacy while abroad, using a online prescription system.
