Welcome to the CARMEN Project

Thanks for taking the time to visit our website. We are a European eTen project that aims at introducing a multi-media and knowledge based CRM-like service for the public sector, using a common technical platform across different European countries. Or in layman terms we are creating better methods for citizens to have positive experiences interacting with government services through the use of new technologies. Hence CARMEN = Citizens Advanced Relationship ManagemENt.

The CARMEN service is based on existing open source CRM modules, which have been specially designed to improve the relationship between citizens and Public Administrations. Similarly to what happens in the private sector, such service will facilitate the access to and the utilisation of the PA’s databases for the joint benefit of government, citizens and businesses.

Please feel free to look around and find out more information about our project by using the menu located on the left hand side of this page. Here you will be able to find out details about the project actions, who’s involved and the achievements so far. We will aim to update content every month so don’t forget to come back regularly to get the latest news.We also have a newsletter service so why not take the time to sign up and have the latest news emailed to you automatically every couple of months.

 CARMEN Technical Breakthrough

In September 2006 the Black Country Knowledge Society, Leon Streete, along with the assistance of Ancitel SPC, were successful in bridging the gap between the CARMEN MAS Modules and the BCKS business portal, “Free Potential”.
The main achievement was the integration of two separate programming languages - CARMEN using Java and Free Potential using PHP. This has now allowed the BCKS to successfully trial the CARMEN Authentication and Authorisation modules in line with the Free Potential portal.
