About the course
Exploit the e-Government potential
e-Government is one of the most challenging and promising public sector management topics of today. e-Government is much more than providing government services over the internet, or moving interactions to digital platforms. e-Government stands for providing technology related solutions to bureaucracies that have high costs and low performance. e-Government includes technology enabled opportunities for sustainable development. If e-Government is to be a driver for sustainability, it should be oriented towards the involvement of all. As such there is a need for policies that can shape the frameworks to achieve this.
