GOVCAMP VIENNA

GovCamp2019

Veränderungen, die durch Digitalisierung in der Verwaltung, in der Wirtschaft und in der Gesellschaft hervorgerufen werden, sind regelmäßig Diskussionsthemen im Rahmen des govamp vienna. Es ist das Wesen eines Barcamp, dass das Programm von den TeilnehmerInnen – beim govcamp vienna Interessierte aus Wissenschaft, Verwaltung, Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft – vor Ort das Programm gestalten. Vorschläge für Inhalte einzelner Sessions können zwar, müssen aber nicht im Vorfeld abgegeben werden. Durch die gemeinsame Festlegung des Sessionplans soll genau jenen Themen eine Plattform gegeben werden, die den TeilnehmerInnen wichtig sind. Registrierung und Teilnahme sind kostenlos.

Motto 2019: Digitaler Raum – frei & sicher?

Die TeilnehmerInnen des govcamp vienna sind eingeladen, sich am 29.11.2019 ab 9:00 Uhr im Regierungsgebäude in 1010 Wien, Stubenring 1 zu treffen. Unser gemeinsames Ziel ist, dass angeregt durch kurze Vorträge oder Präsentationen und in Workshop-Settings viele fruchtbare Diskussionen entstehen.

Das Motto “Digitaler Raum – frei & sicher?” schließt viele Themen mit ein, soll aber TeilnehmerInnen nicht daran hindern, eigene Themen einzubringen. Auch diese Offenheit kennzeichnet Barcamps. Das govcamp vienna ist offen für Diskussionen, die im weiteren Sinn mit Digitalisierung und öffentlicher Verwaltung zusammenhängen. Erfahrungsgemäß gibt es immer wieder Beiträge zu Themen wie E-Government oder Daten, deren Schutz und Sicherheit, elektronische BürgerInnenbeteiligung oder Smart City.

Wie erleben Sie Freiheit und Sicherheit im digitalen Raum?

Zum Austausch über diese und viele andere Fragen sind alle Interessierten und Aktiven aus der Zivilgesellschaft, VertreterInnen aus Verwaltung, Politik, Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft eingeladen, aktiv an den Sessions mitzuwirken und sich in den Zeiten zwischen den Sessions zu vernetzen.

Visiting Fellows at the Department for E-Governance and Administration

The Department of E-Governance and Administration includes the Center for E-Governance and the Center for Infrastructural Security, and focuses on the impact of digital and social change on strategy, security, organization, processes as well as the changes in public administration, business, politics and society.

The Center for E-Governance is based on an established research network in the areas of e-government and e-democracy, leads international conferences and all researchers are active members in several scientific communities. The Center for Infrastructural Security plays a pioneering role in research for sustainable security management and has positioned itself in the German-speaking world as a center of excellence in security. The Department cooperates with several stakeholders from the public sector, for example, the Federal Ministry for Public Service and Sports (BMÖDS), Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs (BMDW) or the Center for Secure Information Technology – Austria (A-SIT).

The head of the Department, Professor Peter Parycek, is currently board member of NEGZ (National E-Government Center), head of the Competence Center Public IT (ÖFIT) at the Fraunhofer Fokus (Berlin) and Member of the Digitization Council of the German Federal Government. Research projects focus on the public and private sectors as well as industrial partners at national, European and international level.  The Department is characterized by its international and multidisciplinary team, the provision of state-of-the-art training and research, extensive networks and cooperations with other research institutes, universities, the public sector as well as private organisations.

Team Department for E-Governance and Administration

The research projects located in the Department include the public and private sectors as well as industrial partners at national, European and international level.

Examples of current projects are the EU-funded projects Strengthening Governance Capacity for Smart Sustainable Cities, Scientific foundations training and entrepreneurship activities in the domain of ICT-enabled Governance, or ManyLaws – EU-wide Legal Text Mining using Big Data Processing Infrastructures, as well as Austrian projects such as Digitalisation in Lower Austria or Das Digitale Amt.
