European eGovernment research network

Objective

Fragmented research-funding mechanisms, low visibility and low, or absent, trans-national coordination of national and regional eGovernment-research policies are some of the obstacles on the route to establishing a European Research Area (ERA) in the eGovernment domain. European eGovernment research would clearly benefit from an improved support by a research strategy on the European level.

The main objective of the eGOVERNET project is to coordinate the creation of national eGovernment RTD programmes/initiatives as well as to stimulate the integration of existing national eGovernment programmes. The consortium behind the eGOVERNET proposal represents organisations with national programme responsibilities for innovation and research in eGovernment in their respective countries, including both the old and the new member states and associated states. The partners have come together with a vision to coordinate their research policies and work towards a long-term strategy for eGovernment research.

The results of the project include studies of state-of-the-art, best practice in eGovernment, impact indicators, together with a comprehensive knowledge resource directory. This will feed into a roadmap for a common research agenda for eGovernment research in Europe. The eGOVERNET project will work towards the development of a shared roadmap for eGovernment RTD targeting coordinated RTD activities, policies and thematic foci, to promote innovation by synergy in European eGovernment Research.
