Satellite information, navigation and telecommunication applications enable the delivery of new, innovative public services and the improvement of existing ones. They could support more efficient interaction on all levels of governance, better quality and diversity of the available services.
This year, on the occasion of the OPEN DAYS 2011, several workshops are focused on how Governments use satellite applications to optimise the quality of public services in a vast number of areas, from education, social inclusion and public health to environment and economic development. In this framework, the GOES project was presented as an example of good practices, during the networking after the workshop “Innovation in E-Government: Satellite Applications as Enablers of Smart Public Services” that took place on 11th October at the Committee of the Regions.
More than 100 people who were attending the workshop and the networking had the opportunity to watch a video from the Policia local de Valencia that illustrates how the GOES project is been implemented in this city.
