e-Governance Conference

Giant Leaps Start With Small Steps


Let’s challenge the coronavirus pandemic together with the online e-Governance Conference!


The online e-Governance Conference provides you with an unique opportunity to discuss the topics that reflect the governments’ current challenges in helping citizens to manage their lives and businesses online.

You’ll meet e-governance experts from around the world without leaving your home or office!

Keynote presentations, expert sessions and live discussions focus on the practical aspects of digital agendas and collaborative models of e-governance.

This year’s conference celebrates the anniversary of the first walk on the Moon. As we know, this giant leap for humankind started with small steps: research, meetings, programming, technology development, etc. The same principle applies to digital transformation and e-governance development.

Achieving long-term goals with continuous innovation that utilizes smaller projects based on common principles will be one of the key learning and sharing objectives of the e-Governance Conference 2020.

The e-Governance Conference is an annual event organized by the e-Governance Academy (eGA) since 2015.

General admission fee for the conference is 9.90€. If you received an invitation, please use the link in the email to register.
