CROSSROAD - A Participative Roadmap for ICT Research in Electronic Governance and Policy Modelling

Objective

Governments struggle to regulate an increasingly interdependent and complex world, as the financial crisis has shown. At the same time, citizens are becoming more vocal in monitoring and influencing policy decisions. Future scenarios are likely to show greater complexity and citizens' involvement. Current ICT tools for collaborative governance and policy modelling start to show great opportunities for decision-making in a complex world, but they still remain an exception rather than the rule, and research is fragmented between academic fields, application areas, and approaches to innovation (theory vs. practice led).CROSSROAD will deliver a research roadmap on ICT for governance and policy modelling, in order to orient towards a common goal the different communities of research actors, domains and sectors. It will create a shared vision and an operational tool to support research policy and research implementation in this field. The roadmap will be based on a cross-analysis of present research directions and future scenarios of collaborative governance, including possibilities for disruptive scenarios of extreme collaboration. It will be presented as a self-standing report and as an online, dynamic knowledge base.The CROSSROADS partners, with unparalleled experience in e-government and e-governance, web 2.0 and roadmapping, will involve a wide pool of expertise through an open, iterative, multi-method approach including in depth desk research, restricted workshops and large scale web consultations, in order to reach out to specialist research activities beyond the traditional e-government stakeholders and beyond Europe.
