Summary to come.

Progress towards realizing the full potential of eGovernment has been slower and less effective than the technologies’ take-up in spheres such as eCommerce. This open workshop of the MODINIS project, Breaking Barriers to eGovernment, will focus on specific legal and organisational solutions to overcome obstacles to eGovernment progression. These solutions will form a set of recommendations to the EC at the end of the Breaking Barriers project in December 2007.

The event will be a combination of presentations from academia and practice and small working group sessions that focus on particular solutions for eGovernment.
