The main theme of this year’s Central and Eastern European e|Dem and e|Gov Days conference (CEEEGOVDays 2016) was to explore how ICT can act as an enabler for transparent and open policy-making process.
The conference aimed to answer questions such as: How can IT contribute to the aforementioned goal? What are the chances and the risks of the use of ICT to promote a European system of Multi-Level eGovernance? What are best practices which could serve as a model for the development of such a system?
This conference addressed public sector practitioners and policy makers, industry professionals and academia alike. The disciplines covered were primarily information sciences, law and administrative science, political science, sociology and economics.
Policy Compass was represented by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and presented a scientific publication titled “A New Indicator of Social Welfare: A Citizen Centered and Open Data Oriented Approach“.
