All levels of Europe's public administration, including regional and local authorities, are invited to take part in the 2017 edition of the European Public Sector Award (EPSA) organised by the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA). Applications can be submitted until 13 April 2017.
Under the overarching theme " An Innovative Public Sector in 2017 – New Solutions to Complex Challenges ", EPSA 2017 seeks to showcase and reward performances 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.
The award contest is open to all levels of Europe's public administration, 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.
