The third successive European eGovernment Awards

eGovernment AwardsThe third successive European eGovernment Awards, organised by the European Commission, have this year received 311 cases from 32 of the 34 eligible European countries.

Together with the forthcoming Ministerial eGovernment Conference in Lisbon (PT), the Awards revolve around four main themes relating to ICT: "Better public services for growth and jobs"; "Participation and transparency"; "Social impact and cohesion" and "Effective and efficient administration". The number of cases received by theme is as follows:

  • 28 for Better public services for growth and jobs
  • 49 for Participation and transparency
  • 40 for Social impact and cohesion
  • 194 for Effective and efficient administration

Following the eligibility screening, each case will be evaluated by a panel of independent experts. The experts work separately in a first phase of the evaluation process and agree on a ranking in the second to ensure the highest standards and complete impartiality. The result of the first two phases of the evaluation will be the selection of 52 finalists. They will be invited to participate in the Workshop for Finalists on 26-27 July in Brussels (BE) and to exhibit at the Ministerial eGovernment Conference 2007 on 19-21 September in Lisbon (PT).

All applicants will receive electronic notification of the outcome of the evaluation once the short list of finalists has been established. The finalists will be announced on the Good Practice portal (www.epractice.eu/news) in mid-July.

Voting for the public vote for the "most innovative good practice" will be open from 16 July to 15 September. To be eligible to vote of one of the 52 Finalist you must be a registered user of, and with a full profile on, the Good Practice portal before 1 September 2007.

The winners will be presented at the Ministerial eGovernment Conference 2007 at the Awards ceremony on 19 September in Lisbon (PT). For further information on the Ministerial eGovernment Conference 2007 please visit: www.megovconf-lisbon.gov.pt
