European Interoperability Framework and the Architecture Guidelines
Revision of the EIF and AG commences this month.
The European Interoperability Framework (EIF) supports the European Union's strategy of providing user-centred eGovernment services by facilitating, at a pan-European level, the interoperability of services and systems between public administrations, as well as between administrations and the public (citizens, businesses). The EIF defines the general rules and principles for collaboration on interoperability between Member States and European Institutions. It is the highest ranking paper among the IDABC interoperability documents.
