Two major events took place in Brdo, Slovenia within the frame of the “eGovernment days” (11-13 February).
eGovernment Conference 2008 – “Alliance with Users”: an event organised by the Slovenian government on the occasion of the Slovenian Presidency of the European Union.
Placed under the theme “Alliance with Users”, the one-day eGovernment Conference 2008 (February 11) highlighted the three policy priorities of the Slovenian Presidency in the area of eGovernment, namely: interoperability, eParticipation and eInclusion, reduction of administrative burden. In an era of highly developed information technology, those elements are essential for a better public administration. A set of plenary sessions as well as interactive and rolling on live cases presentations revolved around those three core priorities.
The conference theme is to be understood as the need to form an alliance with users and to take steps together in the mentioned policy areas, towards the creation of a modern public administration.
Mid-term IDABC Conference 2008 - "IDABC and beyond": On the next two days following the first event (February 12-13), the eGovernment days featured the mid-term IDABC conference under the auspices of the Slovenian Presidency; the Mid-term IDABC Conference "IDABC and beyond", organised by the IDABC programme of the European Commission’s General Directorate for Informatics.
