Definition: ESS Vision Implementing Project (ESS VIP) programme
Statistical concept; Peer reviews
The ESS (European Statistical System) VIP programme aims at developing a common ESS infrastructure and appropriate legal framework and new administrative mechanisms that will allow for sharing of information, services and costs among ESS partners, based on better integrated processes. It covers a 5 years period starting from 2013.
The ESS VIP Programme will consist of concrete projects which will move the ESS towards a more efficient system in a coordinated way. The projects will be organised in two main strands:
• Technical cross cutting projects that focus on building a common ESS infrastructure for sharing data and services;
• Business (domain oriented) projects that realize the sharing of information, services and costs in individual statistical domains.
