The Greek Digital Governance Research Centre

In April 2017 we launched the Greek Digital Governance Research Centre, a multi-discipline collaborative research centre of excellence in Electronic Governance, hosted at the University of the Aegean.  

The launching event was attended by representatives of the academia, the public sector and private enterprises, discussing on the new developments and technological trends in the domain of e-government.

The day opened by a keynote speech from Marijn Janssen, professor at the Technical University Delft, the Netherlands, highlighting the current trends in public administration modernisation from all over the world.  You may see the main issues touched by Marijn in the short interview below:
