Smart State

At the heart of public service is the imperative to prioritise the welfare and requirements of the public. Volt is dedicated to spearheading a comprehensive overhaul of Malta and Europe's public sector institutions. This initiative is driven by the integration of cutting-edge technologies and innovative methodologies to confront the repercussions of prolonged economic downturns and, in some situations, extensive periods of disregard. Through these efforts, Volt seeks to modernise public institutions, ensuring they are equipped to address the evolving demands of their populations.


The 5+1 Challenges

Volt has defined 5+1 fundamental Challenges that need to be tackled in each European country and in Europe as a whole.

Why 5 + 1 Challenges?

The 5 Challenges are basically the same for every country, but their implementation can be adapted on the national level to take into account local realities.

The +1 Challenge – our proposal to reform and strengthen the EU – is identical across all our national programmes.
