A detailed summary of each project and activity can be found in the Project Portfolio 2014-18 document below (30 MB), including partners, clients, and implementation dates.
UNU-EGOV strives to cement its role as an international reference of excellence in the EGOV area, bringing together multidisciplinary and multicultural teams around complex problems and emerging challenges. Core activities include bespoke expert and policy analysis and recommendations that are combined with the implementation of frameworks, toolkits, and tailored training on specific topics. Internal know-how combined with a large network of experts from the public and private sector, academia, international organisations, and think-tanks enables UNU-EGOV to deliver a high and unique level of expertise to topics pertaining to IT and technology in different service areas, levels of government, and contexts.
The Operating Unit continues to undertake initiatives to broaden its network and to consolidate its academic programme through the development of the conceptual foundations of policy-driven Electronic Governance and research policy linkage between EGOV and the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, in general, and the Sustainable Development Goal 16 in particular,
but also the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) action lines 1, 2, 7, and 10.
