International Cooperation Forum for eGovernment service providers 2012 in Vienna, Austria

Austrian Federal Economic Chamber in Vienna © WKÖ


17. November 2011

eGovernment companies and service providers from across the globe now have the unique opportunity to extend their network and find new business partners as part of the International Cooperation Forum 2012. The event will be held at the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber in Vienna on 26th January 2012.

eGovernment is a synonym for modern and efficient administration. As part of the Digital Agenda for Europe, the European Union aims for one out of 2 citizens and 4 out of 5 businesses to be using eGovernment services by 2015.

Interfaces between companies, citizens and public authorities need to be coordinated to ensure effective cooperation. According to the lastest eGovernment Benchmarking report by the European Commission, Austria‘s public administrators offer 100% of the “20 basic public services” online. Over 75% of Austrian companies already use eGovernment services regularly, and an increasing number of citizens are now electronic customers. Austria holds, thus, one of the top positions when compared with other EU countries. This means that Austrian public administrators and service providers have a wealth of experience in designing, developing, implementing and operating successful eGovernment projects.

The International Cooperation Forum 2012 with a focus on eGovernment is targeted at service providers, companies and potential purchasers from all over the world who work in the following areas or who offer similar products:

  • Generating online forms
  • Central register (Registry of residents, land registry, commercial register)
  • Identification (identity cards etc.)
  • Usability and web accessibility (WAI)
  • Multilingual advisory service (Expert systems)
  • Secure communication and archiving (e.g. electronic legal correspondence)
  • eProcurement
  • eHealth and Telemedicine

The International eGovernment Cooperation Forum 2012 will be held at the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber in Vienna on 26th January 2012.
