Characterization of the governance process
Depending on their area of expertise, bodies will shape the developments of the ESCI and the digitalisation progress, taking the form of mapping the priorities of the stakeholders as well as their needs, validation of technical tests; dissemination, awareness, guidance and support, etc.
Each of these bodies will convene regularly and function in parallel to one another (see schedule below) and heir activity will be enhanced by the Stakeholders and Business Governance Board, a coordination body which will analyse the feedback accrued by these various channels and help ensure the EC Steering committee has the best possible information to make informed decisions in such a way that all voices are given due consideration when carrying out strategic planning and setting out the ESCI business vision.
The primary purpose of the EWP governance structures is to ensure this Initiative can be steered effectively towards a successful completion, earning the trust, support and satisfaction of the community it serves. Furthermore, the current structure aims to shape the best possible governance mechanisms, enabling the further development of EWP and ESCI, with a clear focus on making sure that all bodies can take the best possible decisions.
To increase transparency towards all stakeholders, a page containing information about the several governance bodies and its activities will be available in the future in the new ESCI Information Portal that is currently developed in close cooperation with the European Commission.
