Great success of the First Webinar of the Open Government Services Study.

The 1st Webinar of the Open Government Services Study took place on the 18th of December 2015. The Open eGovernment Services study is aimed to provide a robust and shared definition of Open eGovernment Services, assess the value of these and understand how the public sector can become an agent of innovation.

The webinar has been attended by 43 professionals belonging to the public sector, the private sector and academy, from all over Europe as well as from other extra-EU countries such as Nepal, Russian Federation, Uruguay, Colombia, Jordan, Brazil, Argentina, Pakistan, and Peru.

During this first webinar the study team presented and discussed:

  • A working definition of Open eGovernment Services, with the aim to illustrate which services can be included in this category and how this category can be explained;
