The INTERLINK project aims to overcome the barriers that prevent public administrations from sharing services with private partners (including citizens) by developing a new model of collaborative governance and ensuring greater transparency, mutual trust and legitimacy of bottom-up initiatives.

The main activities foreseen for the INTERLINK project (Innovating goverNment and ciTizen co-dEliveRy for the digitaL sINgle marKet) concern the implementation of three use cases in three different PAs: MEF, Latvian Ministry for Regional Development and City of Zaragoza.

MEF’s use case goal is to test the INTERLINK platform and its enablers (INTERLINKERs) to co-design a Participatory Strategic Planning Model (PSPM). To co-create this new service, MEF will place users at the center while building a community of its key stakeholders. The results will be a PSPM blue-print and mock-up eventually open to other Public Bodies along a repository of best practices

Another planned activity will be the development of digital constituents, called "interlinkers" for the implementation of the governance model and the activation of the basic functionalities necessary to allow private and public actors to cooperate.


The project is based on the development of a framework and an operating platform based on an open software system that exploits mobile communications facilitating the production of services between PA and private individuals.


The INTERLINK project, according to the Grant Agreement, started on January 1st 2021 and will end on December 31st 2023. The MEF, as a partner, will play the role of contributor in the assigned Tasks and will direct the use case assigned to it.


The total cost of the INTERLINK project is 198,250 euros
