The rapid transformation of our society and the digital revolution, along with budgetary pressures, pose challenges as well as bring opportunities for governments and for the future of public services. Following the ideas from the consultation on ICT-driven public sector innovation needs under H2020, TOKEN aims to provide enablers for the introduction of disruptive technologies that contribute to accelerate the transformation of public services towards an open government model based on the principles of collaboration, transparency and participation.
This transformation towards an open, transparent and collaborative paradigm involves great challenges technically, politically, legally, organizationally and culturally (in terms of work culture). In order to succeed in this paradigm shift, a change in government and institutional culture is required. In this regard, disruptive technologies like Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) can lead to a transformation of the value chain and the relationship between actors, delivering new solutions to the complex problems that governments are facing.
TOKEN aims to provide a Blockchain Platform as a Service Solution enabling public agencies to pilot the adoption of distributed Ledger Technologies as a driver for transformation of Public Services towards more open, transparent, trusted and efficient services.
