Uncoordinated research funding mechanisms, lack of publicity and poor, or non-existent, nation-to-nation coordination over national and regional eGovernment research policies:  these are some of the obstacles holding back the establishment of a European Research Area (ERA) in the eGovernment domain. European eGovernment research would clearly benefit from improved support by a research strategy designed to work at European level.

The main objective of the eGOVERNET project is to coordinate the creation of national eGovernment RTD programmes and initiatives while also encouraging the integration of existing national eGovernment programmes. The consortium backing the eGOVERNET proposal represents organisations with national programming responsibilities for innovation and research in eGovernment in their home countries, which include both the old and new member states and the associated states. The partners have come together with a vision of coordinating their research policies and working towards a long-term strategy for eGovernment research.

The results of the project include studies of state-of-the-art, best practice in eGovernment management. Impact indicators are also described and there is a comprehensive knowledge resource directory. The assembled information will be used to design a framework for a common research agenda for eGovernment research in Europe. The aim of the eGOVERNET project is to develop a shared framework for eGovernment RTD. This framework will focus on the coordinating of RTD activities, policies and thematic foci. Another expectation is that synergy will promote innovation in European eGovernment Research.
