  • Transcript

    • 1. eGOVERNET European eGovernment Research Network Coordination Action in the IST programme of FP6 co-funded by the CEC (IST-2004-026575) Coordinator: VINNOVA – Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems FOCUS: eGovernment Research Management in Europe Project period: January 1, 2006 – December 31, 2007
    • 2. A European eGovernment Research Programme Framework Trond Knudsen Research Council of Norway
    • 3. ’ SPACE’ obtains price for ”good community practice”
      • Only research based project
      • Only project only on prototype stage
    • 4. eGOVERNET CA Objectives (2005)
      • Start exchanging experiences
      • Harmonize views
      • Discuss research priorities
      • Compare best practices
      • Establish benchmarking principles and impact indicators
    • 5. The eGOVERNET action plan
      • To improve cooperation and visibility of good eGovernment research management
      • BY
      • Investigating the current status of eGovernment research funding and management across Europe
      • Identifying expected future needs in eGovernment research
      • Proposing a systematic framework, a “handbook”, addressing the needs by
        • proposing policy actions and practices
        • holding up good practices
    • 6.  
    • 7. Tasks – Work Packages
      • Perform a needs analysis for eGovernment research programme management
      • Build a knowledge service on eGovernment research programmes
        • Compile state-of-the-art and best practice in current eGovernment RTD management
        • Map important actors in eGovernment research
        • Perform a gap analysis
        • Build intelligence at the EU level
      • Interest Group and Partnership Building - prepare for a sustainable network
    • 8. Tasks – Work Packages (2)
      • Measure eGovernment research and its impact
      • Suggest a common framework, a handbook, for eGovernment research management
      • Perform selected transnational RTD activities:
        • Review of common evaluation procedures
        • Create joint expert groups and propose procedures for evaluation/research
      • Disseminate results and stimulate awareness
    • 9. What is ‘the framework’?
      • An organised and structured set of main eGOVERNET results -
      • A ‘handbook’ of good management of national and regional eGov research in Europe
      • The framework is the base on which to build and future cooperation with high level commitment
      • Launching the EU eGOVERNET Research Barometer
    • 10. Stakeholders Their roles in eGovernment pose a series of needs Current eGovernment research Lot of activities Fragmentation No systemic approach Desired Future States (of eGovernment) Policy Options Stimulate awareness and achievements Network built during the project Collaborative work to make policy options a reality Focus - Work done
    • 11. Understanding Stakeholder’s needs
      • Classification of actors involved with respect to their roles at the eGovernment “arena”
      • Looking at both dimensions of implementation and research in eGovernment
      • Ultimate aim of the eGOVERNET work is:
        • to disseminate results
        • ensure take-up in planning and implementation of future eGovernment programmes and projects
    • 12. Stakeholders’ roles Policy & Strategy Definition Programme Design Implementation Monitoring & Evaluation Socio-economic research Technological research Managers of eGov development Managers of eGov research NGO Managers & Strategists (repres. Users) Policy Makers eGov Researchers Private Sector Managers Programme lifecycle flow Feedback in lifecycle flow Role link Programme lifecycle phase Research field influencing Programme phases
    • 13. Current status of eGOVERNET work
      • Main findings:
      • Classification of programmes (few programmes explicitly referring to eGov)
      • Fragmentation is a reality (not necessarily a negative factor!), also at national level
      • The bottleneck paradox
      • Not clear identification of priorities
    • 14. Different settings for eGov Research
    • 15. The Bottleneck Paradox Projects / Implementation Research programmes / other funding instruments Policy
    • 16. Future needs and gap analysis
      • Desired state depicted
      • Analysis of existing gaps
      • Overall goals established
      • Potential actions connected to the goals
    • 17. The Desired Future State Technological Development Management & Funding Organization Different Types of Research (mixed) European Research Area Express/Formulate Drives Uses/Funds Influences Influences Promotes/Enforces Pan-European Dimension Influences Needs Higher quality of eGovernment Implementation Users & Stakeholders Increased Priority of eGov Research Long Term Vision
    • 18. Policy/strategy options (by example) Consolidated political and research strategy aligned with industry targets (triple helix) eCatalonia, Spain Establish intensive Public-Private-Partnerships among academic researchers, public administration and ICT industry Research strategy based on embedded priorities Verdikt , ICT programme in Norway Tecnologias de servicios de la Sociedad de la Informasión, Spain Innovation Programme Multimedia, Germany Prioritize eGovernment research within ICT programme Explicit strategic priority with specific target groups eServices in Public Administration, dedicated eGovernment programme in Sweden To establish a dedicated eGovernment research programme Action oriented component Example Policy options GOAL 1: Establish organization and management infrastructure for eGovernment research activities
    • 19. Investigating potentials of policy options Introduce eGov PPP-based R&D instrument where PPP is already well institutionalized Consolidated political and research strategy aligned with industry targets (triple helix) Establish intensive Public-Private-Partnerships among academic researchers, public administration and ICT industry Include eGov in ICT R&D programmes in many nations and regions Research strategy based on embedded priorities Prioritize eGovernment research within ICT programme New research programmes for nations with dedicated eGov and RTD policies Explicit strategic priority with specific target groups To establish a dedicated eGovernment research programme Potential visions Action oriented component Policy options GOAL 1: Establish organization and management infrastructure for eGovernment research activities
    • 20. Conclusions
      • Great potential of improvement of eGovernment research effectiveness
      • Indication of potential visions for eGov research according to policy options with link to practices
      • Proposed framework which may become a dynamic working tool - a ‘living handbook’
    • 21. So What?
      • The framework is a foundation for awareness and engagement
      •  But requires collaboration in
        • Reviewing needs and options
        • Keeping it updated and useful
        • Mobilizing stakeholders across borders for achievement of preferred policy options
      • …… better start now!

    • 23. … . To move towards
      • Research based, informed and approved
      • ‘ My Government’ for all
        • With intelligent avatars operated through intelligent cockpits?
        • Foreseeing needs through ‘semantic personalization’?
        • With one-click services in web 2.0 mash-up technology?
        • Safe and secure, with ample participation possibilities?
      • Pan-European Services
        • At any geographical spot, in any channel?
        • With access to any service at any level in any public unit?
        • Supporting governance and trust in redefined democracies?
