Prof. Robert Krimmer, TOOP project coordinator explains in the article published on the Cordis website how TOOP reduces the bureaucratic red tape using the once-only principle. TOOP developed a technical architect that facilitates the sharing and reuse of data between public administrations. This architecture is tested by the project partners within three domains: general business mobility (GBM), e-procurement and maritime. The TOOP technical architecture and components will be taken by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) and applied to the implementation of the Single Digital Gateway.
The COVID-19 pandemic shows that the need for the full implementation of the cross-border once-only principle is higher than ever.
