Communication adopted by the European Commission on 18 November 2022, providing the context to the draft Interoperable Europe Act tabled alongside it.

Further information:

Member States of the European Union have been investing intensely in the digitisation of their public administration. However, the digital transformation of the public sector has not been complemented by interoperability across the European Union (EU). Interoperability involved the sharing of information and knowledge between organisations through the business processes they support, by means of exchanging data between their network and information systems. This cannot be achieved solely by technical means; it needs agreements and established processes between different organisations, aligned data descriptions, laws that allow for those data exchanges and structured long-term cooperation.

This Communication was adopted by the European Commission on 18 November 2022 to accompany a draft Regulation aimed at strengthening cross-border interoperability and cooperation in the public sector across the EU.
