The Public Administration sector (PA) has now more than 10 years of experience in realizing R&D projects in order to support the public sector to automate administrative procedures and processes and to provide more efficient and effective public services to citizens and businesses, as well as to improve cross‐ organizational information flow, interoperability, processes and transparency. In this way, PA is specialized in:

  • The management of projects that involve R&D applied to public administration processes and services.
  • The  development  of  ICT  tools  that  implement  more  efficient  services  with  the  special  focus  on  interoperability and cross‐organizational flows.
  • The promotion of eGovernment in the public administration sector (e.g. training).
  • The dissemination of the latest R&D projects results to public administrations and policy makers.
  • The integration of research results into the public administration legacy systems.

Atos will be the main integrator of the RADICAL project, as well as the lead partner for the setup, supervision and execution of the project’s living labs. RADICAL will lead the exploitation  and  business  planning  activities  of  the  project,  with  a  main  emphasis  on  the  sustainable/wider  use  of  the  RADICAL approach by multiple SMEs.
