We started in January 2011 a study for the European Commission on collaborative e-government. You can see the short leaflet (collaborative production in egov study introduction letter).

The key questions that the study addresses are:

–       What is collaborative e-government and to what policy areas is it applied?

–       How are Europe and its Member states positioned?

–       Does it have a substantial positive impact on the quality of services, while maintaining for universality and accountability?

–       What are the drivers and the barriers?

–       What policy actions should Europe promote, and with which targets?

We’ve done, interviews, web-surveys, case studies. Now we present the results, at a free workshop on October 27th (register here). It will not be only us, speaking: there will be great testimonials and the video-intervention from the US government. Finally, we will have a brief brainstorming on policy measures. Look forward to seeing you!
