Παρατηρήσεις και σχετικό υπόβαθρο του ISLab:

Tο WAVE χρησιμοποιεί το Debategraph που σε αυτή την περίπτωση ίσως είναι λίγο δύσκολο να χρησιμοποιηθεί λόγω της συγκεκριμένης γεωγραφικής περιοχής στην οποία εστιάζεται το πρόγραμμα. Ωστόσο, δεδομένου ότι είναι ελεύθερα διαθέσιμο στο internet μπορεί να αποτελεί μέρος της πλατφόρμας που θα προταθεί. Κομμάτια που σχετίζονται με την κλιματική αλλαγή μπορούν να χρησιμοποιηθούν για να ενταχθούμε στο Priority 2. Γενικά είναι προτιμότερη η ένταξη μας στο Priority 2 (ή στο 1) από ότι στο 3 καθώς η χρηματοδότηση είναι μεγαλύτερη. Από το EATrain2 project θα μπορούσαμε να χρησιμοποιήσουμε την τεχνογνωσία πάνω στο elearning platform ώστε να πάμε για το Priority 2 και συγκεκριμένα Priority 2: Sharing resources and competencies for environmental protection and conservation.

Μία πρόταση λοιπόν είναι κατασκευή πλατφόρμας eLearning (ίσως ενσωματώνοντας το Debategraph και άλλα Web 2.0 εργαλεία) σε συνεργασία με άλλα πανεπιστήμια και περιβαλλοντικούς οργανισμούς της περιοχής προκειμένου να ικανοποιήσουμε το Priority αυτό (συνδυασμός προτάσεων WAVE και EATrain2).

Κάποια επιπλέον κομμάτια σχετικά κομμάτια με τους στόχους.

Τα πιο σχετικά κομμάτια είναι τα ακόλουθα:

Objective 2: Working together to address common challenges

The challenges related to environmental protection and promotion appear to be the most relevant for the partner regions in the Black Sea Basin. International partnerships and networks, promoting integration of instruments, methodologies and activities in this field will particularly address the real cross-border nature of these environmental challenges.

Priority 2: Sharing resources and competencies for environmental protection and conservation

Objective 2 will be addressed by Priority 2. The central focus of this priority will be the environmental protection and conservation. The challenges related to the environment should be addressed by paying close attention to the technical and political instruments available to the programme and partners. The main areas of intervention are the protection of the maritime environment, the natural areas on the coasts and also the inland areas, and waste treatment technologies and management. This priority will promote innovation and exchange of good practices in the fields of scientific, technical and administrative competencies and capacities for environmental protection and conservation.

Measure 2.2 Promoting research and innovation in the field of conservation and environmental protection of protected natural areas

This measure focuses on the sustainable development of natural protected areas in the partner regions. The aim of the measure will be achieved through various activities in the fields of management, research and economic initiatives.

Objective 3 Promoting local, people-to-people type actions

The promotion of people-to-people initiatives in the Black Sea Basin is especially challenging because of the large number of countries the extremely large geographical area and the historical and geopolitical background of the region. The activities that will be pursued under this objective can also generate strong synergies with the activities promoted under the priorities of Objective 1 and 2, which are all connected to human resources development, governance capability and stronger integration of communities in the Basin.

Priority 3: Supporting cultural and educational initiatives for the establishment of a common cultural environment in the Basin

Objective 3 will be pursued by Priority 3. The main focus of the priority will be to promote the integration and networking in terms of the rich cultural heritage and current cultural life in the partner countries. The main areas of activity that could contribute to the objective are those involving young generation, cultural and educational institutions. Both areas are the most promising in the long term, not the least in terms of the impact on local development based on mobilization of local resources. The educational institutions and cultural associations will be the main instrument for this strategy. Networking among cultural institutions will be promoted especially through the exchange of experiences and the sharing of cultural heritage and traditions. This is aimed at the establishment of a common cultural environment for the Black Sea Basin community, which in turn will contribute to the reduction of the negative impact of borders on reciprocal understanding and friendship.

Measure 3.1 Promoting cultural networking and educational exchange in the Black Sea Basin communities

This measure aims to create stronger social and cultural relations among communities around the Black Sea Basin, in order to promote good relations between the communities and stronger and better-integrated educational institutions in the Black Sea Basin, in order to support social and economic development. It focuses on the promotion of mutual understanding between neighbours and respect for cultural diversity. The activities foreseen are various, involving cultural institutions and NGOs active in cultural and social promotion or inter-ethnic relations. The improvement of the connection of educational institutions in the Black Sea Basin will contribute to the reduction of gaps among regions in terms of education.

Τίτλος Study on eGovernment scenarios for 2020 and the preparation of the 2015 Action Plan
Πηγή Χρηματοδότησης EC (Information Society – SMART-2009-0069)
Αντικείμενο This study will support the European Commission by providing inputs for the elaboration of an eGovernment Action Plan for 2010 to 2015. The action plan is intended to set the target objectives as well as the implementation instruments in order to achieve the common goals coming out from the Ministerial Declaration on ICT for governments and public services that is expected for November 2009, at the occasion of the Ministerial Conference on eGovernement to be held in Malmö, Sweden on 19-20 November 2009.

Εκτίμηση Πιθανής Εμπλοκής μας Είναι έργο ανάλογο του MODINIS Interoperability Study. Τα pros είναι ότι είναι ιδιαίτερα high visibility documents τα cons είναι το χαμηλό budget και το μικρό χρονικό διάστημα που απαιτεί να γίνουν οι άριστες αναλύσεις. Θα χρειαστούν αρκετά άτομα να δουλεύουν παράλληλα για να επιτευχθούν χρονικά οι στόχοι.
Πιθανή συμμετοχή είναι ως partners μαζί με κάποιον που θα αναλάβει το ρόλο του coordinator (DTI?). Είναι αρκετά δύσκολος ο ρόλος του coordinator και πιστεύω αρκετά απαιτητικά τα παραδοτέα. Μπορεί να υπάρξει και συνεργασία με European Dynamics που έχουν αναλάβει το ePractice.eu και πιστεύω έχουν το know-how για τέτοιου είδους μελέτες.

Τίτλος Study on User expectations of a Life Events approach for designing eGovernment Services
Πηγή Χρηματοδότησης EC (Information Society – SMART-2009-0075)
Αντικείμενο This new generation of eGovernment services may also require a new type of architecture. This could involve an evolution from the currently popular paradigm of Service Oriented
Architectures towards a new approach based on the concept of a Service Object Oriented Architecture. This is an option to be considered.
The objective of this study is to investigate and document possibilities for a Life Events approach for the provision of eGovernment services, other new and possibly complementary of ways of service provisioning and the consequences of this for the service architecture. The context for this study is the so-called Web 2.0.
The study team will therefore have to take account throughout the whole project of how eGovernment services may benefit from web 2.0 features. It will take into consideration possibilities offered for service features such as the automatic or on-demand delivery of services,
the personalisation of services, the use of social participation techniques (e.g. consultation, petitioning, support networks and community sites), the use of collaborative production techniques (e.g. crowd-sourcing, expert tools, mass collaboration and joint production of services) involving public, private or civic partners.

Αντικείμενο Pilot B – stimulating the uptake of innovative ICT based services and products;
Theme 3: ICT for Government and Governance
3.5 eParticipation, empower and involve citizens in transparent decision-making in the EU
Pilots Type B are expected to implement their service in at least four Member States or ICT PSP Associated countries, however, proposers should anticipate sustainability and scalability beyond the pilot phase, when making their proposal.
The duration of the pilot is expected to be 24 to 36 months within which there should be a 12 month operational phase. An operational phase is defined as the situation in which the
interoperable services and technologies are functioning in a real-life setting.
The consortium must include a minimum of four mutually-independent legal entities from four different EU Member States or ICT PSP Associated countries.

Άλλη ιδέα μπορεί να αφορά κάποια άλλη πλατφόρμα eParticipation. Μπορεί να χρησιμοποιηθεί ανοιχτού λογισμικού ή για παράδειγμα μια συμμαχία με την Αθηναϊκή Gov2u προκειμένου να χρησιμοποιήσουμε την πλατφόρμα τους (Gov2DemOSS) – αν και δεν είναι κάτι ιδιαίτερο.
Άλλοι partners που μπορούν να προσφέρουν eParticipation πλατφόρμα είναι η TuTech (από το PeP-net) και η Zebralog (και οι δύο γερμανικές). Μπορούμε να επικοινωνήσουμε μαζί τους για να μας έχουν υπόψη τους αν μας ενδιαφέρει.
Μπορούμε να συμμαχήσουμε και με κάποιο ελληνικό national body ή κάτι παρόμοιο εφόσον υπάρχει η δυνατότητα και μπορούμε να συνεργαστούμε.

Τίτλος Study on Enterprize 2.0 (SMART 2009/0021)
Πηγή Χρηματοδότησης EC (Information Society – i2010)
Αντικείμενο Enterprise 2.0 covers traditionally “a system of web-based technologies that provide rapid and agile collaboration, information sharing, emergence and integration capabilities in the extended enterprise”2. For the purpose of this study this could also entail virtual worlds.

Core functionalities of enterprise 2.0 may include tools such as: hypertext and unstructured search tools; wikis; weblogs for storytelling; social bookmarking for tagging and building organizational folksonomies; RSS for signalling; collaborative planning software for peer-based project planning and management; ideas banks for ideation (idea generation); social networking tools; mashups for visualization etc.
Enterprise 2.0 is a set of tools to promote knowledge management, unlock innovation potential, and generate new efficiencies, and is therefore a set of tools which significantly can help promoting the competitiveness of the European knowledge economy.

The overall objective of the study is to, as clearly as possible, demonstrate the actual and potential gains for the information society in promoting the development and usage of
enterprise 2.0. This means that some evidence of the present and the potential future
economic impact of enterprise 2.0 should be demonstrated. Best practices on how to
implement and use enterprise 2.0 should be provided, with special focus on how enterprise
2.0 can foster innovation and disruptive changes. Furthermore, challenges for a wider
deployment of enterprise 2.0, such as limited access to high speed broadband, should be
described and followed up by relevant policy recommendations.

Πηγή Χρηματοδότησης EU (Joint Operational Programme “BLACK SEA 2007-2013”)
Αντικείμενο The global objective of the programme, also covered by this Call for Proposals, is to achieve stronger regional partnerships and cooperation. By doing so, the programme aims to contribute to its key wider objective: “a stronger and more sustainable economic and social development of the regions of the Black Sea Basin”.

The programme’s 3 specific objectives, also covered by this Call for Proposals, are:
1. Promoting economic and social development in the Black Sea Basin areas
2. Working together to address common challenges
3. Promoting local, people-to-people type actions

These three specific objectives will be pursued by means of 3 priorities, which together form the programme’s approach to achieve these objectives:
1. Supporting cross border partnerships for economic development based on combined resources

Stakeholder community for once-only principle: Reducing administrative burden for Citizens

To significantly reduce administrative burdens, the once-only principle (OOP) demands public administrations to request key data of citizens and businesses only once, and to internally share these data, while respecting data protection and privacy regulations. However, this principle also bears a number of organisational, legal, socioeconomic and technical challenges to finally harvest the full benefits and to reach the digital by default status. SCOOP4C investigates, discusses and disseminates how the OOP can be implemented in public service provisioning in order to significantly reduce administrative burden and simplify administrative procedures for citizens while reusing data among public administration with the control and consent of citizens.

Rural Inclusion

 

 

Rural Inclusion aims at adopting a state-of-art infrastructure (i.e. modelling approach and software environment) that will facilitate the offering of innovative services by public administration in rural areas. More specifically, the objective is to address a longstanding challenge by public administrations: reducing the administrative burden of enterprises in rural areas, by reducing the information elicitation process of businesses when they want to use a particular instance of some public service, or making more effective use of the resources.

To achieve this, Rural Inclusion adopts, adapts, and deploys a Web infrastructure combining semantic services with a collaborative training and networking approach, in the rural setting of five European regions. It focuses on selected case studies of e-Government services that regional public authorities already offer, supports them by a rigorous and reusable service process analysis and modelling, and then deploys a semantic service that facilitates the disambiguation of the small businesses needs and requirements when trying to use the particular services. At the same time, the semantic service is complemented by a number of other Web-based services that support the creation of communities of learning and practice in rural settings, thus facilitating the communication between the rural businesses with the regional public authorities.
