In the area of eGovernment, the Polish Government together with the European Commission are hosting the 6th European Ministerial eGovernment Conference and Exhibition "Borderless eGovernment Services for Europeans" in Poznan, 17th -18th November, 2011. This event will be one of the largest and biggest EU events in Poland during the six month period of Polish Presidency, with approximately 800 delegates.

This Pre-Conference is intended to show the results of important European eGovernment research in generating and implementing e-visions and e-solutions, as well as the possibilities to build new strategies upon current results. The following themes are focused on:

  • Innovations for Government e-participation
  • Innovations for Business e-participation
  • Innovative e-services

This Pre-Conference aims to demonstrate many signs and activities showing that Europe is rapidly becoming mature as an e-society. However, to ensure a widespread uptake and high service quality level for all, there are still many challenges that have to be a subject of advanced, multidisciplinary research. These challenges are a subject of the discussion during the Pre-Conference.
