Action Group 5

To connect people electronically and promote accessibility to public services


The focus of this action is twofold. On the one hand to draw up a comprehensive strategy for guiding and shaping the ongoing process of digitisation in the Alpine Region and on the other hand the accessibility to services which are provided by public authorities to people living within a certain area. This can be achieved by making the best use of new available technologies as well as developing take-up of e-services.
