– Objective 3.6: Adoption, taking up and testing of standards and specifications for eHealth interoperability Funding instruments: Thematic Network (based on actual costs) - It is intended to support one Thematic Network for 1 M€ EU contribution Focus and outcomes This thematic network aims at supporting the adoption, take-up and testing of existing eHealth standards and specifications to define an eHealth interoperability framework.

Currently, several consortia are developing standards and specifications to facilitate interoperability between eHealth systems; some of those are also developing testing specifications and tools used to organise interoperability testing events, and then issue interoperability quality labels. These standards and specifications will become core elements of a future eHealth European Interoperability Framework.

However, to ensure an effective take up and define a complete eHealth interoperability framework it is recommended that a two-level (EU and national) interoperability testing, labelling and certification scheme is put in place (see the final report of the Hitch project29 29 http://www.hitch-project.eu/

–  –  –

and the Digital Agenda for Europe action 77). The Thematic Network is expected to contribute to this objective.

This objective cuts across the targets of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy ageing, since it concerns the provision of a technological base for large-scale deployment of innovative services. This will benefit the replication and scaling up of successful pilots in the care and cure domain, especially for chronic condition management, social inclusion and integrated care.

Conditions and characteristics

The network needs to:

Drive adoption of interoperability standards and specifications at European level;

– Drive adoption of an eHealth Interoperability Testing Guideline.

– Drive closure of key gaps in interoperability testing tools.

– Drive adoption of a two-level labelling and certification process (European level and – national/project level).

Ensure that all necessary phases to attain eHealth interoperability shall be taken into – account and addressed properly.

Propose and implement solutions or process improvement to address barriers to – standards adoption (as described in eHealth-Interop report as a result of M403 phase I).

Include relevant organisations and consortia recognised by the market or by regulation – and having demonstrated, well established and several years experience in standards or specifications development, testing or quality labelling.

Not exceed 24 months in duration.

– Expected impact Delivery of a common approach for testing and certification of eHealth solutions and – services in Europe.

Improvement of the EU eHealth standards and specifications development process.

– Objective 3.7 : Community building on Active and Healthy Ageing Funding instruments: Thematic Network (based on actual costs) - It is intended to support one Thematic Network for 1 M€ EU contribution.

Focus and outcomes The aim of the thematic network is to increase awareness, create consensus and establish "coalitions" of wide-scale deployment of innovative services in the area of Active and Healthy Ageing.

It should build a community for developing innovation in age-friendly environments and support sharing methodology and indicators to assess innovative services in support of Active and Healthy Ageing.

CIP ICT PSP work programme 2012

Conditions and characteristics

The thematic network is expected to:

Address issues linked to cross-border deployment and transferability of evidence, and – establish roadmaps for targeted deployment among selected groups of regions or Member States or associated countries by engaging key representatives.

Support and organise targeted workshops to respond to the needs of the Initiative.

– Enable input from the widest range of expert stakeholders operating in this domain.

– Facilitate links between results of existing projects and relevant partners which could – facilitate market uptake.

Align with other relevant initiatives in this areas e.g cooperation platforms and online – facilities that support implementation of the activities of the EIP on Active and Healthy Ageing.

Expected impact

Creating a European community for developing innovation in age-friendly – environments and related deployment of active and healthy ageing products and services, to enable their longer term sustainability, as well as allow for ongoing pilot project projects to be clustered for preparing deployment of tested solutions.

Facilitating the emergence of an evaluation culture of innovative services in active and – healthy ageing for long-term sustainability of pan-European deployment.

Promoting evidence-based deployment in innovative health and care solutions and – services.

This theme supports the Digital Agenda for Europe by innovating and making government services more effective and fully interoperable. It is in line with the eGovernment Action Plan and the "Malmö Ministerial Declaration on eGovernment"30 that foresee the provision of key cross border services and the promotion of innovation in services of public interest.

It also supports the eCall initiative through the extension of the pilot HeERO:

The following objectives will be addressed in 2012:

Objective 4.1: Basic cross sector services – Objective 4.2: Extension of eCodex (on eJustice) – Objective 4.3: Extension of HeERO (on eCall) – The total available funding for this theme is 20 M€.

Objective 4.1: Basic Cross Sector Services Funding instrument: Pilot A - It is intended to support one pilot for 12 M€ EU contribution Focus and outcomes The pilot will focus on all the building blocks developed by the different pilot projects previous launched. It will take the responsibility of the governances of the finished or finishing project where relevant, it will consolidate all the existing building blocks developed and will assist the Commission in coordinating the running projects.

The scope is to prepare the path towards a sustainable infrastructure for interoperable services, exploiting the achievements of the different pilot A initiatives supported with the CIP-ICT PSP programme31.

Building blocks coming from existing pilots can be complemented by additional ones. The outcomes will be a comprehensive set of consolidated building block services, ready for reuse, to be widely taken up throughout member or associated states when delivering cross border public services in any sector.

The pilot will provide for use of unique electronic identity (eID) management (one of the priorities of the Single Market Act32) as well as other building blocks such as eDelivery, virtual company dossier, etc.

The pilot will play a very active role for sharing experience and disseminating results and solutions developed under the CIP-ICT PSP pilots with a view to them being adopted by stakeholders in Europe.

Conditions and characteristics

The pilot will:

30 http://www.egov2009.se/wp-content/uploads/Ministerial-Declaration-on-eGovernment.pdf 31 STORK (www.eid-stork.eu ), PEPPOL (www.peppol.eu), epSOS (www.epsos.eu), SPOCS (www.eu-spocs.eu); RENEWING HEALTH (www.renewinghealth.eu) and eCODEX (www.ecodex.eu) 32 See http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:52011DC0206:EN:NOT

CIP ICT PSP work programme 2012

Consolidate building blocks for cross-border interoperability of public services that – must be reusable by public authorities, business and citizens. The building blocks should be modular and exchangeable without affecting the whole system and capable of being easily integrated in existing systems of Member States or associated countries.

In particular, the pilot will develop and validate an eDelivery building block to be reused in any sector or service, building from the results from SPOCS and PEPPOL.

Propose solutions that are :

– Compliant with the EU legal framework Interoperable, generally available and non-discriminatory Efficient, allowing cost reduction when using building blocks Technically sound, replicable and scalable with high degree of usability and reliability. The building blocks must be reusable outside the area where they originally where developed.

Contribute to standards in liaison with appropriate standard organisations.

– Provide a deployment plan for solutions in existing pilots.

– Help for the governance for exploiting the outcomes of finished or finishing pilot and – assist the Commission for coordination of the running projects.

In addition:

Participating public authorities shall operate the pilot system for at least one year.

– The scalability of the services needs to be validated. The pilot will implement, test and – make operational the services in participating states. It will evaluate any legal barriers and identify issues that need to be solved through regulatory actions.

Common specifications and building blocks have to be applicable to Member States or – associated countries which are not directly involved in the pilot. A 'reference group', open to all relevant authorities of all Member States and associated states, should be set up. The “common specifications”, the periodic progress statements and a final assessment of the pilot operation are all to be in the public domain. Common building blocks must be shared under the EUPL license (or equivalent).

Reference material including guidelines, manuals, educational materials, are to be – produced.

A strong exploitation plan and effective dissemination and communication activities – need to constitute an integral part of the proposed work, in order to promote in particular the visibility of all the building blocks and engage stakeholders to use them.

Participation of industry as solution providers is encouraged as well as the involvement – of EU and international standardisation bodies.

Proposals should include specific and realistic quantitative indicators to monitor – progress at different stages in the project's lifetime.

Expected impact

–  –  –

Facilitate the wide deployment of interoperable services, through already validated and – accepted building blocks, that deliver time efficiencies and cost reductions.

Objective 4.2: Extension of eCODEX (on eJustice) Funding instrument: Pilot A - It is intended to support the extension of the eCodex Pilot for 5 M€ EU contribution Focus and outcomes eCodex33 is an ongoing pilot, launched in December 2010, which involves 13 Member States and Turkey. The aim of this objective is to extend eCodex to demonstrate the scalability of its solutions to new member or associated states and to widen its acceptance.

The extension will increase the impact, facilitate the long term deployment of the proposed solutions all across Europe. It will contribute further to the implementation of the eJustice Action plan (2008).

The extension will guarantee a complete integration of the results with the European eJustice Portal coordinated by the European Commission's Directorate General for Justice34.

Conditions and characteristics

The pilot will include at least five additional relevant administrations (or legal entities – designated to act on behalf of the national administrations) from Member States or associated countries not yet in the eCODEX consortium35.

The outcomes will include a methodology to encompass all Member States or – associated countries independently of the state of development of their e-Justice strategies.

It will develop a long term sustainability plan for pan-European deployment, – encouraging also Member States and associated states to deploy national solution.

Any additional activities addressed by the extension and the way they complement the – existing eCODEX pilot will have to be described in the proposal. In particular, attention will be paid on cross border judicial fields of law.

Proposal has to be submitted by the coordinator of the running eCODEX pilot, acting – on behalf of all the participants in the existing project, together with the new participants.

Exploitation plan, dissemination and communication activities need to constitute an integral part of the proposed work, addressing public authorities and relevant stakeholders.

Proposals should include specific and realistic quantitative indicators to monitor – progress at different stages in the project's lifetime.

33 http://www.ecodex.eu/ 34 https://e-justice.europa.eu/home.do 35 i.e. Member States or associated countries which are not represented in the running eCODEX pilot represented by a national administration or legal entity designated to act on behalf of the national administration

–  –  –

The extension will deliver a complete integration of the results with the European "e Justice Portal" coordinated by the European Commission's Directorate General for Justice.

Expected impact Enabling Member States and associated countries to benefit from interoperable eJustice – solutions.

Facilitating the deployment of a set of building blocks valid beyond the judicial area.

– Objective 4.3: Extension of HeERO (on eCall) Funding instrument: Pilot Type A - It is intended to support the extension of the HeERO pilot for 3 M€ EU contribution Focus and outcomes HeERO36 is an ongoing pilot A selected after the 2010 CIP ICT-PSP call 4. It is a 3 year pilot that started on 1 January 2011. The objective is to extend HeERO to new Member States or associated countries in order to demonstrate the scalability of its proposed solution and widen its acceptance.
