Project name: eEnviPer: A single multi-purpose SOA platform that delivers environmental permissions services through the cloud of e-Government services and applications (No. 297358 – CIP-ICT-PSP.2011.4.1)

Client: Croatian Environment Agency
Period: 04/2012 – 03/2014

Location: Italy, Croatia, Serbia, Greece and Turkey


The legal framework of the EU requires Member States to ensure the protection of the environment from the early planning stages of projects and activities, taking into account all the necessary measures for environmental protection and the mitigation of any negative impacts. For this purpose, environment impact assessments are required in a variety of situations, including regulating industrial emissions, waste management or pollution prevention and control. In the context of the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) that is part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme of the European Union, the eEnviPer project has been implemented in five European regions in Italy, Croatia, Serbia, Greece and Turkey.

The eEnviPer platform is based on the software development DOT framework that builds on open source technology, including PHP supplemented with smarty for the creation of HTML templates, JavaScript supplemented with jQuery and Ext JS to create interactive web applications and MySQL as relational database system. The implemented functionality provided GIS, Knowledge Management System, Workflow Management System and the Participation System. The Croatian pilot was based on national legislation and the cases from the pilot area in Krapina-Zagorje County with the workflow covering environmental EIS review, EIA Screening and EIA Scoping and ecological network Appropriate Assessment Screening and Main Assessment review.
