In March this year, the Government of Galicia has introduced a web portal that promotes transparency and good governance. The platform www.eidolocal.gal is a place where Galician municipalities can publish their activities and services, and more importantly fulfill the transparency criteria set by the legislation.
In meeting this criteria they will be enjoying the help and collaboration of the University of Vigo. According to the contract between the University and the Galician institutions the project will be funded by 40000 euros, which will be provided between 2016 and 2017. The collaboration comes as no surprise since this is not the first time the university is contributing to the local community in the area of law implementation and development, with Red Localis, a network based on Public Local Administration developed by GEN.
The research group GEN of the University of Vigo will have the honor of performing this task and providing expert advice and support to all municipalities that have to exhibit transparency in their work. By using the platform, the citizens will be able to access relevant information of the local administrations and councils.
