Open Government Services: definition and taxonomy – 1st Webinar on 18th December 2015

December 10, 2015


We are delighted to invite you to the First Webinar of the Open eGovernment Services Study.

The European Commission has launched in August 2015 a new study devoted to the analysis of the new generation of Open eGovernment Services. The 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.

During this first webinar we will present and discuss:

  • 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;
  • A taxonomy of Open eGovernment Services, with the aim to define the scope and the categories of this type of services.

12:15 – 12:30: Definition and Taxonomy of eGovernment Services (David Osimo-Open Evidence)
