Promoting e-participation projects and innovations
Based on the 2020-2023 implementation plan, Digital Public Services Switzerland annually promotes projects that use new technologies to establish regional cooperation and provide new electronic channels for participation in politics and administration. Projects that help to achieve the implementation objectives of the eGovernment Strategy Switzerland are supported.
Selection and support
A panel selects the projects to be co-financed each year. It sets the amount of the allocated funds. For the 2023 funding period, the jury consists of Gérald Strub (Swiss Association of Municipalities), Eva-Maria Boretti (Canton TG), Reto Joller (Canton ZG), Stéphane Schwab (Canton FR) and Dieter Tschan (FCh-DTI).
The support is for a limited period of one year. Non-profit organisations and authorities at all three levels are eligible.
The call for projects for the 2023 funding period is closed. We will shortly be presenting the 2023 funded projects here.
A total of CHF 200,000 p.a. is available for innovation projects.
A total of CHF 150,000 p.a. is available for e-participation projects.
Innovation and e-participation projects
In the innovation arena, Digital Public Services Switzerland supports projects at communal, cantonal and federal level that use new technologies or promote regional cooperation, for example. Funding in the area of e-participation projects is used to promote new electronic channels for participation in politics and administration. Communal and cantonal projects are eligible for funding.
