7. Improved public services and solutions for the citizens
As a result of cross-border cooperation, solutions are taken up or upscaled by organisations.
The programme objective tackles obstacles related to the administrative, regulatory, language and cultural barriers in public administration. It includes all branches of the society which are not covered by the scope of Programme Objectives 1–6.
All levels of public administration experience exchange and learning from each other are targeted, but these should lead to practical solutions and policy improvements, and/or new or improved public services. The digitalisation of public services is supported under this programme objective. In addition, participatory processes taking place when designing the improved solutions and services are supported.
However, joint curricula development within the educational systems is not supported under this specific objective.
