Applying in real-life contexts, results from major public sector initiatives: Public Document Regulation, EBSI-ESSIF

Measurable impacts using S.M.A.R.T metrics to substantiate how well each pilot meets established success criteria and aligns with DE4A principles

Workable designs for current and future OO data sharing implementations
