    nicola: can you summarize in simple language? :D

    New "Interoperable Europe Act" legislation has been proposed. The main elements contained in the new regulation can be summarised as follows: - the concept and definition of ‘trans-European digital public services’ in line with the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality - provisions ensuring a structured EU cooperation where public administrations come together in the framework of projects co-owned by member states, as well as regions and cities - a multi-level governance framework steered by the ‘Interoperable Europe Board’, which stands at the core of the new structure set up by the regulation - the possibility to share and reuse interoperability solutions, powered by a one-stop-shop for solutions and community cooperation (‘Interoperable Europe portal’) and supported by measures to promote innovation, and enhance skills and knowledge exchange - main objectives and conditions of the mandatory interoperability assessment, in line with the principle of proportionality to avoid overburdening national and local administrations - consistency with the provisions of the artificial intelligence act (AIA) and of the general data protection regulation (GDPR), with regard to the establishment of and participation to interoperability regulatory sandboxes

    The Interoperable Europe Act introduces: A structured EU cooperation where public administrations, supported by public and private actors, come together in the framework of projects co-owned by Member States, as well as regions and cities. Mandatory assessments to evaluate the impact of changes in information technology (IT) systems on cross-border interoperability in the EU. The sharing and reuse of solutions, often open source, powered by an ‘Interoperable Europe Portal' – a one-stop-shop for solutions and community cooperation. Innovation and support measures, including regulatory sandboxes for policy experimentation, GovTech projects to develop and scale up solutions for reuse, and training support.

    I've read it, but still did not get anything, what's the TL;DR? :))

    > I've read it, but still did not get anything, what's the TL;DR? :)) From the FAQ: The European Interoperability Framework (EIF) distinguishes four different levels of interoperability that need to be integrated into an integrated governance approach: technical; semantic (to make sure systems have the same understanding in the language they use, and data is structured the same way); organisational (for instance aligned business processes); and legal (rights and obligations).

    Yeah, that does...nothing. Thanks for trying. :)

    Nicola probaby assumes may be of interest to XSF to follow developements and implematations of the Interoperable Europe Act. If so I totally agree with him. There may be a range of opportunities to catch. Don't know exactly which kind of opportunities but I think there are.

    Surely technical, semantic, data structures can be of interest. Just that now it sounds nebulous :)
