5.4 ICT for Governance and Policy Modelling

Current ICT tools for collaborative governance and policy modeling show great opportunities for empowerment of citizens and increased transparency in decision-making. In addition, there is a growing need for research and innovation for future public services that will be a catalyst for growth and sustainability.

Target Outcomes

a) Research will focus on policy modelling and simulation for achieving productivity gains and innovation in public service provision through innovative use of ICT. Such modelling, simulation and prediction should also enable public administrations to develop policies for growth and investment strategies for next generation ICT for public services. This research will also address innovative ICT solutions that build on Web2.0/Web3.0 and social networking, crowd-sourcing and collaborative technologies.

b) Coordination and Support Actions.

b1) Roadmapping of research on ICT for innovative public services and governance. Apart from addressing Coordination & Support actions should specifically address road mapping of the use of ICT for innovative public services and their governance, in particular cross border services. Another relevant topic that should be addressed is the empowerment of the younger generations through ICT tools.

b2) Increased collaboration, on Electronic Identification and Authentication, in particular with the USA and Asia, that could be a leverage for European solutions worldwide, while ensuring data protection for the citizens.
