"The [current] disconnect between the EU and national level and the local one presents a particular challenge for those like Neelie Kroes who hope that the open data movement will indeed ‘turn government data into gold’ – especially if by gold we mean more cost-efficient and effective public services as well as new wealth generation."

Despite Neelie Kroes' ambitious declarations for a new open data strategy at the regional level, authorities are still struggling to become familiar with that process and the strategy still faces fierce resistance, writes Julia Glidden from 21c Consultancy.

This is a time of fiscal pressure and service cuts. Councils are restructuring services and looking to cut back on non-essential areas of spending. Is democratic engagement one of those areas? This is Open Gov best practices at its finest.

The music is unable to catch up to the times; trying to stop the innovation process, denying rights to their paying customers along the way.

The European Commission established the e-Inclusion Awards to raise awareness, encourage participation and recognise excellence and good practice in using ICT and digital technology to tackle social and digital exclusion across Europe.

"We want to collect all the great practice across Europe in supporting people to go online and the stories of individuals who have benefitted from their internet experience."

These awards will collect information about impact through an application form. We are also asking for audio visual materials that express your successes – stories told on blogs, videos, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Have you registered you project? Don't miss out

Gov2u mentioned in a Intelletics Blogpost - good read on how local governments can reduce spending and increase efficiency by increasing citizen engagement and participation. (things to start consider in the budget?)

Interesting project designed to by-pass the lack of web connectivity, by using the booming expansion of mobiles. #inclusive #democracy #gov2u
