Using IEEE LOM standard for the provisioning of training services on the eGovernment paradigm to rural SMEs

  1. 1. Using IEEE LOM standard for the provisioning of training services on the eGovernment paradigm to rural SMEsAxel Maroudas, Pantelis Karamolegkos, John Stoitsis, Nikolaos Marianos Greek Research & Technology Network, Athens, Greece Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  2. 2. eGov and Rural SMEs SMEs constitute a critical aspect of the overall production process Low penetration degree of innovative tools and technologies within rural SMEs  Result  SME’s failure to alleviate the cost of their administrative transactions  High Administrative Burdens  Low Productivity Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 2 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  3. 3. Rural Inclusion Project Acronym: Rural Inclusion Contract no :238900 Project Type: CIP-ICT PSP Start Date: 01/07/2009 Duration: 36 Months Total Budget: 4.800.000€ EU Funding: 2.400.000 € Web Site: www.rural-inclusion.eu Wiki: wiki.agroknow.gr/ruralinclusion Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 3 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  4. 4. Rural Inclusion Addressing a longstanding challenge:  What: reducing the administrative burden of enterprises in rural areas  How: by reducing the information elicitation process of businesses Principal Objective  To reduce the administrative burdens (ABs) of rural SMEs, by reducing the information elicitation process of businesses when they want to use a particular instance of some public service, or making more effective use of the resources Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 4 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  5. 5. Rural Inclusion Platform Incubator of three components  Semantic eGov  The main bundle of semantic eGov services that helps reducing the administrative burden for rural SMEs, in regard to their transactions with regional public authorities  eGovTube  A semantically interactive web platform for knowledge and experience exchange between users related to facilitating the gradual adoption of the innovations proposed  RuralObservatory2.0  The carrier of training content , also provisioning for some additional eGov services Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 5 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  6. 6. Rural Observatory 2.0 Online observatory that has been developed in the context of the Rural-eGov (http://rural- egov.eu) Leonardo da Vinci (LdV) initiative Monitors and assesses the e-Government services that are being deployed in a number of rural areas around Europe. Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 6 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  7. 7. Rural Observatory 2.0 Lists the digital training content  developed to support the vocational training curriculum  to prepare rural SMEs to use and exploit eGov services. In the context of the portal, the training content will be deployed in the form of Digital Training Objects (DTOs) Application profile based on IEEE LOM Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 7 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  8. 8. Application Profile Elements Category: General  Includes elements that describe a learning object (in our case, a DTO), and store general information about it Sub- Use in Rural Element Description Value space element Inclusion http://ec.euro Geography or region Include 3-layer pa.eu/eurostat/ General Coverage to which this DTO coverage of specific ramon/nuts/co applies. European regions delist_en.cfm? list=nuts Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 8 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  9. 9. Application Profile Elements Category: Life Cycle  Describes the history and current state of a DTO, and entities that have affected the DTO during its evolution.  The following elements have been selected and used as recommended by IEEE LOM: Version, Status, and Contribute. Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 9 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  10. 10. Application Profile Elements Category: Meta-Metadata  Contains information about the metadata record that describes the DTO  Identifies the metadata record in a classification system (i.e. the repository’s database with the metadata descriptions).  The following elements have been selected and used as recommended by IEEE LOM: Identifier, Metadata Schema, Language, Contribute and their designated sub-elements Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 10 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)

  12. 12. Application Profile Elements Category: Rights  Describes the intellectual property rights and conditions of use for this DTO  The following elements have been selected and used as recommended by IEEE LOM: Cost, Copyright & Other Restrictions, and Description Category: Relation  Defines the relationship between the described DTO and other DTOs  The following elements have been selected and used as recommended by IEEE LOM: Kind & Resource Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 12 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
  13. 13. Application Profile Elements Category: Classification  Describes where this DTO falls within a particular classification system.  All the elements described in LOM are used in Rural Inclusion AP.  In the context of Rural Inclusion initiative, the classification system used is based on the NACE codes of economic activity.

  14. 14. Conclusions The adoption of a well-accepted metadata standard can promote interoperability between repositories and reusability of the metadata records In eGov repositories, the adopted metadata schema has to be contextualized in order to better meet user needs and requirements This paper presents such specializations which consist of the application profile for RI, using IEEE LOM & e-GMS standards Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. 14 Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP)
