The main objective of the project “Multi-aspect initiative to improve cross-border videoconferencing” (leaded by the Austrian Ministry of Justice) is to promote the practical use of and to share best practice and expertise on the organisational, technical and legal aspects of cross-border videoconferencing (VC) in order to help improving the overall functioning of e-Justice systems in Member States and at European level. The sub-goals are:
Guideline document with improved step-by-step instructions (“protocol”) for typical VC use-cases, which combines technical (e.g. starting, accepting a call) and judicial (e.g. identify witnesses, experts, suspected and accused persons) and organisational elements (e.g. requesting/confirming the detail parameters for the VC)
Improved form for requesting/confirming a VC containing the variable and/or confidential parameters for the videoconference and recommendations for the public and static VC parameters to be published on the European e-Justice Portal.
This project is financed with the support of the Justice Programme of the European Union.
