Title: Transparency & Openness
Location: Brussels, Belgium

Description:
In recent years, many comprehensive efforts have been made in eGovernment. In particular, many governments have worked to increase openness and transparency in their actions, by using ICTs as cost-effective and convenient means to promote openness and transparency, while reducing corruption and enabling freedom of information.

This event will aim to address the subject of transparency and openness of governments relating to their interaction with citizens. Emerging technologies and services currently allow users to trace their personal data stored by public administrations. Technology acts as an enabler for users who can check who accesses their administrative files thus giving them an insight in the process of decision making; one of the most demanded eGovernment services.

This event will also contribute towards these aims. Redesigning governance and promoting public understanding and participation in government activities will be among the potential topics of the event. Presentations that aim to showcase specific good eGovernment practices promoting greater government accountability and transparency, and electronic services that provide cost-effective means are also welcome. Potential benefits and barriers to ICT-enabled transparency efforts will also be discussed. The presentations will focus on practical examples and case studies of implemented transparency practices and the impact of current experiences in the field of eGovernment and citizen life.
