We-Go – Enhancing Western Balkan eGovernment Expertise

Short description, main aims and objectives of the project:

The main objective of the FP6 CA project We-Go was to enable public administration in Western Balkan Countries to reach higher productivity and equity by first establishing of an “We-Go” Interoperability Framework with focus on transactional cross-border services and providing best practices for corresponding transactional application domains delivered as trial prototypes in order to enable follow-up implementation projects; second, by establishing “We-Go” Academies offering training courses as accompanying measures for the selected applications as well as foundation for future regional eGovernment course program deployments; third, by establishing of an “We-Go” Knowledge Net built by a system of federated registries which will ensure sustainability and further improvements beyond the end of the project. Services that were addressed by the project included eCustoms – New Computerised Transit System, eFinance – VAT Information Exchange System, eJustice cross border cases – Automation of Court Procedures, European Companies Register and European Land Information System, eAdministration – Electronic Filing System and eTrade Facilitation for European waste transport.
Together with partners from Austria and Estonia, our role was to gather the best eGovernment practices and to transfer them to the Western Balkan Countries.
