eCohesion has been saved
The Commission's large eCohesion project aims to reduce the administrative burden related to the EU’s Cohesion and Rural Development Policies. eCohesion seeks to ensure that, within the 2014-2020 Regulatory framework, beneficiaries of Structural Funds will be able to use a legally binding fully electronic and paperless exchange with bodies managing these Funds (at national, regional and local level).
DG Regional & Urban Policy in partnership with DG Employment, DG Agriculture and Rural Development, DG Maritime Affairs and Fisheries and DG Informatics
Deloitte initially conducted a study on how to help Member States implement eGovernment services allowing applicants and beneficiaries of Structural Funds to exchange data electronically using electronic portals. Based on that, Deloitte delivered a technical study for the Commission to estimate the impact of the eCohesion initiative at Member State level, and provided regular support to prepare regulatory documents for the period 2014-2020 and on specific business and IT aspects related to the project, e.g. e-signature, interoperability, and development of open-source software.
