Deadline: 23 April 2020
European Commission is seeking applications for Action Grants to support National or Transnational E-Justice Projects.
European e-Justice aims at improving access to justice in a pan-European context and is developing and integrating information and communication technologies into access to legal information and the workings of judicial systems. Procedures carried out in a digitised manner and electronic communication between those involved in judicial proceedings have become an essential component in the efficient functioning of the judiciary in the Member States.
