eGovernment Lab

eGovernment lives on vision, courage for change and the concentrated cooperation of all forces. The eGovernment Lab provides a platform which serves as a competence hub, workshop and showcase for future-oriented eGovernment simultaneously. As technology, solution and scientific consultant, the eGovernment Lab supports IT providers, governmental bodies and companies in fostering process-oriented public administration. The universality of the processes through the interoperability of the used ICT systems in particular, the seamless data interchange on the basis of standardized and registered interchange formats and the use of future-proof products through the targeted selection of commercial and open source components with open interfaces serve as focal points. Through its international networking and its many partnerships, especially with eGovernment laboratories in Belgium, Brazil, Peru, Poland, Romania, Vietnam and Russia, the eGovernment Lab has worldwide know-how about international eGovernment standards and best practices at its disposal.
