Observatory summit report Interest Group and partnership building
A forum for partnership building and knowledge exchange around the activities of the project, within the EU, as well as EEA and countries outside Europe. The eGOVERNET Interest Group has an important role as a panel for the formulation of a European framework for eGovernment research strategies.
The Interest Group includes main key players in national research programmes responsabilities, key ICT industries and key research organisations. There are more than 900 persons persons on the invitation lists and there are currently more than 200 members from 27 countries in the Interest Group. Six Interest Group meetings have been arranged during the reporting period. D4.1 Interest Group Summit report(M27)
Guidelines for enhancing the impact of eGovernment research
The Guidelines are written for two audiences. Firstly, those in public sector organisations keen to enhance the utilisation of research. Secondly, researchers keen to promote the utilisation of their research. A third role (rather than an audience) is also highlighted which might form a conduit between those utilising research and those providing research. This report is a deliverable from Work package 5, " Measuring eGovernment research and its impact"

Consolidated Report on the workshops and expert hearing This report summarises the discussions held at a series of workshops and hearings on the path to a common vision for eGovernment research involving European, national and regional levels. There were over 240 participants at the workshops and hearings representing 34 countries worldwide. D6.1 Consolidated Report on the workshops and expert hearing (M24)(PDF)
Proposal for a European eGovernment Research Programme Framework This report integrates the main results of the eGOVERNET project. The objective of the eGOVERNET project is to coordinate the creation of national eGovernment RTD programmes and initiatives while encouraging the integration of existing national eGovernment programmes. Main activities have been mapping existing eGovernment research funding, instruments, management schemes and best practice at national and regional levels; measuring eGovernment impact; performing a needs and gap analysis for such research management; providing a knowledge service; building partnerships and creating a common framework of understanding; and supporting further coordinated development of good eGovernment research funding, instruments and management.

Outline for database of evaluation experts
The ultimate goal of Work package 7 “Transnational RTD Activities” of the eGOVERNET project is to prepare for possible future common research programmes and joint calls for project proposals. The work package should establish a set of recommended harmonised routines for efficient evaluation and reviewal of projects and programmes of research for eGovernment, One of the first logical steps is the establishing of an international database of experts on evaluation of eGovernment research projects and programmes.

Guidelines for harmonised evaluation procedures This report describes the background, the objectives and scope, the methodology adopted, and finally a resulting set of recommended criteria representing the harmonised guidelines for evaluation of eGovernment(-related) research projects (and programmes) when applications/proposals for the funding of research projects are being reviewed, when the interim and final results of the research projects (and possibly their implementation) are being assessed.

Web portal for eGovernment research The eGOVERNET web portal for eGovernment research (www.eGovCommunity.net) will function as a knowledge repository for the eGovernment community including end users. The portal has been scoped, developed and tested and delivered moth 24. The framework allows for an interactive and collaborative approach, where users can collaborate to create content. This new web portal for eGovernment research will function as a repository for the eGovernment community. The platform allows for an interactive and collaborative approach, aiming at gearing up the benefits of eGovernment research and allowing a better use of the results. The web portal will primarily be directed at policy makers and research programme managers, but also include business and end users. Users of the community web portal will also be able to blog, interact with the Wika, and discuss eGovernment topics. Aministrator and Co-Aministrator to different parts of the web portal are included in the work. As part of this process, the administrators attend a meeting in Dublin on 17 January where they will be trained with regard to the use of the portal. End users are invited to registered and the portal will continue to grow alsongside with its users. The are ongoing discussions with representatives from ePractice web site and newly establesed newworks in the line of the eGOVERNET work.

Increased understanding of the use of eGovernment research
The report has two main purposee:
1) to serve as a platform for the empirical work in Measuring eGovernment research and its Impact (WP5)
2) to present indicators used to measure the impact of research on policy making.

High visibility on the eGOV arena
eGOVERNET wants to make a difference in better management of eGovernment research. To create awareness and understanding, the project has a set of presentation material (presentation folder, roll-up, etc)
