Introduction to the network

The eGovPoliNet consortium consits of a core group of 18 organisations all experienced in researching and developing ICT solutions for Governance and Policy Modelling thereby sharing common practices, objectives and work methods. It represents an excellent group of partners with complementary skills relevant for the specific objective on building an active and sustainable community on ICT solutions for Governance and Policy Modelling.

The consortium's international spread provides already a good ground of a community to start from including highly qualified teams from all over the world. The group embodies a wide diversity of knowledge, contacts, levels of seniority, and experience in ICT solutions for Governance and Policy Modelling, and includes some of the most prominent international researchers in the field today.

The initial core group covers multiple disciplines that are working in the field of ICT for Governance and Policy modelling and belonging to nine different European countries and seven non-European countries (such as Australia, Canada, China, North-America, South-America, Russia and New Zealand).

In the efforts to build a large community in the field, the network capability aims ot attracting further Organisations, Experts and Policy Makers to enlarge the constituency. We are therefore looking for members who bring in multi-disciplinary skills and competencies to the Policy Community thereby having expertise or experience on relevant themes on ICT solutions for Governance and Policy Modelling, both in research and practice.

Members we are seeking for are for instance representatives of the following groups:

  • Government agencies (at local, regional, national, international level)
  • Policy Makers (at local, regional, national, international level)
  • ICT industries developing relevant ICT solutions
  • Consultancies developing and deploying relevant ICT solutions
  • Communities referring to e-government (incl. e-participation & e-governance in the Public Sector)
  • Communities referring to Socio-Economic Modelling and Simulation
  • Mathematical and formal models of social and economic policy contexts
  • Communities referring to Collaborative Use of Data & Sources (incl. linked data, cloud computing, etc.)
