Addressed to intermediate governments (regions, provinces and federal states), the aim of the initiative was to promote, encourage and disseminate the public administrations processes, the implementation of which can help improve the citizen services.

Intermediate governments from different countries submitted their applications, and a team of renowned professionals from the academic, cultural and business worlds was responsible for selecting the best cases of policies successfully implemented.
