The EPSA 2009

The European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) – mandated by its Board of Governors' decision of 1 July 2008, and with the institutional and financial support of 15 European States and the European Commission (Patronage Commissioner Sim Kallas) - organised the second European Public Sector Award – EPSA 2009. The EPSA 2009 was awarded on the occasion of a high-level conference on leading-edge public administration solutions, held in Maastricht (NL) in November 2009, under the auspices of the Swedish Presidency.

The EPSA 2009 Themes

EIPA and the EPSA Steering Committee (composed of 15 representatives from the countries officially participating in EPSA 2009), with the support of the EPSA Scientific Advisory Board, decided upon four themes that addressed Europe's pressing public concerns and that allowed the various solutions proposed by the European administrations to be identified:

  • Performance Improvement in Public Service Delivery
  • Citizen Involvement
  • New Forms of Partnership Working
  • Leadership and Management for Change

The EPSA 2009 Target Applicants

All public sector institutions from all levels and from all over Europe – with special attention given to local and regional approaches, as well as public sector enterprises, agencies or public-private partnerships – were eligible to submit their projects for the award. The lead applicant – in any case - must be a public sector actor.
