Call for Applications for the European Public Sector Award

The European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) is proud to announce the opening of the Call for applications for its European Public Sector Award - EPSA 2017. Applications can be submitted online until 13 April 2017.

Innovative and efficient performers from the public sector across Europe are invited to present their work, to learn from and share with their peers, and to become part of an extensive European network of public sector excellence.

Under the overarching theme "An Innovative Public Sector in 2017 - New Solutions to Complex Challenges", EPSA 2017 seeks to showcase and reward those cases submitted by public administrations which have demonstrated an innovative approach to public service delivery and policy-making to the increasingly complex, difficult to address and often multi-dimensional challenges faced by the public sector in Europe. (Please see the full call text.)

The award scheme is open to European public sector institutions from all administrative levels, as well as public sector enterprises, agencies and public-private partnerships. The lead applicant must be a public sector institution or authority - other applicants in a consortium, can for example be private companies, semi-public institutions, NGOs, universities or training institutions.
