The application phase of the EPSA 2019 ended on Sunday, 5 May 2019. The EPSA received nearly 160 projects from 28 different countries, 1 EU agency and 1 EU Justice-related international organisation, which present citizen-centric solutions aiming to make their administrations sustainable and fit for the future.
This year’s edition, which is taking place under the overarching theme “New Solutions to Complex Challenges – A public sector citizen-centric, sustainable and fit for the future”, received contributions dealing with areas such as public administration modernisation and reform, information society and digitisation, education, health, and public order and safety, justice and human rights.
81 projects were submitted in the European and National administrative category, 23 in the Regional administrative category and 54 in the Supra-Local and Local category.
The countries which submitted the highest number of applications are Spain, Austria, Hungary, Poland and Norway.
All eligible applications will now be assessed on-line by external and independent experts, who will then meet in mid-June in Maastricht for a consensus meeting to agree on the best practice certificate recipients and a shortlist of projects, which will be nominee candidates and will be visited on-site. All applicants that are among these two groups will be notified the week after the consensus meeting. The on-site visits will take place from July to early September to verify the evaluation results and, in early October, a high-level international jury will take the final decision on the nominees and the award winners. All nominated projects (and thus potential EPSA 2019 winners) will be notified by the EPSA Team early October. More information about the evaluation phase can be found in the ‘Evaluation Process’ box.
