UCLG Committee on Digital Cities Event: Cities of Excellence in the Public Sector


Transfer of the knowledge, know-how and practices obtained from the EPSA represents the core of the scheme. The many good practices rewarded by EPSA offer and contribute to a faster adoption process by other public administrations. Thus, promoting the exchange of the EPSA 2011 best practices is a valuable mechanism to ensure maximum benefit of lessons learned across Europe. This EPSA transfer event will focus on the promotion of accurate information in the location – Bilbao – where an outstanding project has been implemented; it will also provide an opportunity for the exchange of experiences between other “champions” who have already successfully achieved tangible results, as well as those who are in the process of working on this.

In this context, the conference will aim towards and emphasise local administrative achievements -“excellences” – in the various forms and on several sectorial policy areas.

Another essential element is networking. The activity will provide a unique opportunity for participants and experts to meet peers and other decision-makers in the same areas. It will thus support the building of capacities within the administrations attending the event and ultimately create a step further towards a common European administrative space.
