The National School of Public Administration and Local Government (ESDDA), a part of the National Centre for Public Administration & Local Government in Greece (EKDDA), took the bold decision to develop from scratch an innovative legal interoperability laboratory. The Legislation Editing Open Software (LEOS) – an ISA2 Programme solution of the European Commission – constituted the core of the lab. Founded in 1983, EKDDA is the national strategic agent for the of human resources development in the public administration and local government sectors. It is a public entity supervised by the Ministry of Interior.
The Experimentation Lab for Public Administration (LabX) is a safe space to research, co-create and experiment innovative solutions to improve public services, focusing them on the needs and expectations of citizens and businesses. LabX was created to allow the Public Administration to move forward to where obvious solutions are not available, controlling costs and risks before the implementation, and learning from the tests to ensure iterative improvements. LabX is a team of the Administrative Modernization Agency (AMA, I. P.).
