<p>The European Commission's Directorate General for Informatics
(DIGIT) will be in charge of implementing the pilot, which was

<p>The budget further lists a project to encrypt communications among the EU institutions, funded with EUR 500,000; and a pilot that uses Free Software and Open Standards to help civil society actors participate in lawmaking, by improving AT4AM, the software that MEPs use for drafting legislation, which the Parliament <a href="http://blogs.fsfe.org/gerloff/2012/07/18/helping-the-european-parliament-to-release-its-own-free-software/">published as Free Software in 2013</a>. Another project is intended to enable the European Commission to make unclassified documents publicly available by default.</p>
