Fagligt indhold: The course focuses on national and international regulation and policies for e-government, as well as trends and development across Europe in implementing new strategies for the best of use of ICT (Information and Communication technologies) in European business and administrations. Despite the initial high take-up of e-services and some ambitious e-programmes, particular in Denmark, we are still seeing a low use of ICT-based solutions. How can European administration harvest the potential of ICT for innovation, growth and the full participation of all in the information society? What polices are EU and national administration putting in place to address this? What may be the impact of social computing, web 2.0. and new user-centered approaches to e-Government for increased take-up of e-services and how do new channels for e-participation affect relations between citizens, government and business?
