eGovernment to be discussed at e2002

According to a report recently published by the UN Division or Public Economics and Public Administration and the American Society for Public Administration, Norway has been ranked as the best provider of eGovernment services in Europe. However, Norway was ranked behind the top four, which are the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

The United Kingdom emerged as the top EU Member State, but was ranked seventh overall. The Netherlands, Denmark and Germany were ranked close behind the UK.

The report claims that Europe is a global innovator in strategic planning, information access, and citizen participation, and there will be an opportunity to learn about some of these innovations at the forthcoming eBusiness and eWork 2002 (e2002) conference, which is being held in Prague on 16-18 October 2002.

This conference deals with several eBusiness related matters, among them eGovernment. Konstantinos Tarabanis, from the University of Macedonia in Greece will be talking about provision of eGovernment services at the European level. Karl-Erik Andersson, a consultant from Tietoenator Trigon Ab in Sweden, will be addressing the conference on the topic of eGovernment and the total change of Information and Communication technologies. Martin Sedlmayr from Faw, Germany will be speaking about an environmental application call Apnee, which provides information for European citizens. The development of the Apnee system has been supported with funding from the IST Research Programme. The Apnee project is just one of several IST projects presenting results at the e2002 conference.

The eBusiness and eWork events are the conferences for RTD projects in Key Action II of the IST Programme. Key Action II of the IST Programme is also the primary sponsor of the eBusiness and eWork conference series. The major sponsors of e2002 are Canon Europe, InternetOnline, and the Technology Centre (Czech Republic).
