Project EGOPRISE (“E-GOvernment solutions as instruments to qualify the public sector for the specific needs of small and medium sized enterPRISEs (SMEs) in the rural BSR”) aimed to turn public administrations in rural BSR areas to more business oriented service suppliers, to relieve SMEs from administrative burdens, improve their access to information & qualified staff and as a consequence to increase attractiveness of rural areas as places to live, work & invest in.

Project EGOPRISE had an objective to improve workflows & develop interoperable e-government solutions in order to:

  • make public administrations more service oriented for enterprises;
  • simplify the employment process of (foreign) labour for SMEs; &
  • provide SMEs easier entrance into public & business networks.

22 partners from 8 different countries participated in the project: Germany (lead partner), Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Belarus.

The project was financed by the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013.
