From EPSA - European Public Sector Award

Collaborative Governance | Targeting with Scarce Resources | Coping with Demographic Change

The candidates for the award had to demonstrate that their innovations are effective and at the same time financially viable, so that they can be implemented cost-effectively and thereby help to improve the administration’s financial position.
