Building a global multidisciplinary digital governance and policy modelling research and practice community
eGovPoliNet aims to set up an international community in ICT solutions for governance and policy modelling. The international community of researchers and practitioners will share and advance research and insights from practical cases around the world. To achieve this, eGovPoliNet will build on experiences accumulated by leading actors bringing together the innovative knowledge of the field. Capabilities, tools and methods brought forward by academia, ICT industry, highly specialised policy consulting firms, and policy operators and governance experts from governments will be investigated and collected in an international knowledge base. Comparative analyses and descriptions of cases, tools and scientific approaches will complement this knowledge base. Therewith, the currently existing fragmentation across disciplines will be overcome.
INNOVA is responsible for the dissemination and sustainability of the Policy Community, promoting and ensuring project visibility and access to results, stimulating the debate on the topic and exploring new ways to social policy modelling based on multi-disciplinary and collaborative constituency building.
