The project TOOP

The project TOOP reacts to the call of the European Commission as part of the programme Horizont 2020, entitled Once-Only innovation for public administration. The Slovak representative in the project is PosAm, with the support of the Ministry of Finance SR and the Statistical Office SR.

The aim of the challenge is to propose, and demonstrate in pilot operation, a co-operative way of data exchange across the countries of the EU in selected situations. The project has enable better exchange of information and documents concerning business entities in the public administration environment of EU member countries.

The anticipated outcomes of the project will generate time savings, reduce bureaucracy for businesses, speed up the arrangement of legal obligations, while raising the overall quality and effectiveness of public administration. Over the long-term, the project should make it possible to improve the functioning of the EU single market (digital single market) and improve the services of public administration for businesses.

As part of the project, entrants are to compile the principles for the creation or improvement of electronic services in public administration based on a common shared architecture and by applying the principle “Once-Only”. To satisfy this principle, the registers in various EU member states will be linked up, while preserving the security, quality and protection of data.

The project was designed by an international consortium led by Tallinn University of Technology in Estonia, with the participation of some 21 EU countries. The Slovak representative in the project is PosAm, with the support of the Ministry of Finance SR and the Statistical Office SR.
