invites you to participate in the international conference

eGovernment. Effective, Accountable and Open Public Administration in the European Union

12-13 May, 2021

Aim and themes:

The aim of the Conference is to analyse the implementation and functioning of eGovernment in Poland and Europe, with particular emphasis on the impact of digitalisation on openness, accountability, rationality and efficiency of public administration. The process of transformation of administration under the influence of information and communication technologies brings not only benefits but also risks. The conference is devoted to both aspects. The planned subject of discussion is the analysis and evaluation of legal, social, political and economic bases of eGovernment and conditions of its development. As the Polish public administration functions in the European administrative space, the scientific reflection on the eGovernment issues in EU and other European countries, including the countries of Eastern Partnership and Western Balkans, is also required. The issue of using electronic tools within the framework of cooperation between national and European administration will also be discussed.

The conference has an interdisciplinary character including such fields as: law, economics, science of administration, management, history of administrative law and administration.
The eGovernment will be analysed in terms of: current changes and trends in Polish and European administrative law; organization and management in public administration; the concepts, priorities and activities of the public authorities; relations between representatives of public administration and citizens; historical and socio-political conditions of changes in public administration resulting from its digitalisation.


  1. eGovernment - definition and the basis of operation

    Search for a definition; comparison with eGovernance; models of implementation
    and operation of eGovernment; legal, social, political and economic foundations
    of eGovernment; infrastructural and human resources; possibilities for storage and use
    of data; implementation of eGovernment projects; planning of the eGovernment development.

  2. eGovernment as a catalyst for public administration transformation

    The impact of eGovernment on: increasing the transparency of the decision-making process; simplifying the administrative procedure; making the administration more accountable
    for its decisions; facilitating relations between stakeholders and the public administration; increasing the efficiency of public administration bodies and the effectiveness
    of the allocation of public funds.

  3. E-government and cross-border cooperation of public administrations

    The possibilities offered by eGovernment to provide cross-border public sector services
    to citizens and businesses in Europe; developing and facilitating the cooperation of public administrations between the various European countries through the use of information
    and communication technologies.

  4. eGovernment as a factor for increasing potential of public administration in various European countries

    Modernisation of national public administration resulting from the use of the information
    and communication technologies in Poland and other EU countries as well as the Eastern Partnership and Western Balkan countries.
