The eGovRTD2020 was a global roadmapping project sponsored by the European Union 6th Framework research program. It aimed to identify and characterize the key research challenges, required constituency, and possible implementation models for holistic and dynamic governments in 2020 and beyond. A review of the current status of e-government research was given before a series of regional scenario-building workshops in which government, academic, and other participants collaborated to describe possible futures took place. After that a gap analysis assessed the differences between today and possible future outlooks for e-government research, and on that base a detailed research roadmap for the transformation process was developed. It addressed emerging social, economic, and political trends.

The specific objectives are:

  • Integrating multidisciplinary views into a holistic vision for eGovernment 2020.
  • Building scenarios of what eGovernment should look like in about 15 years and what research questions need to be addressed to get there.
  • Defining an eGovernment research roadmap 2020 thereby dealing with the gaps and needs for research in the years to come in order to pave the way to realizing the visions of eGovernment in 2020.
  • Strengthening the eGovernment community to implement the research roadmap for eGovernment 2020.


The vision of eGovRTD2020 was to transform the European Government landscape into a coherent community, anticipating customer needs and leveraging the potential of public agencies. It contributed as well to the European Community to become the world leading knowledge society.
