6 Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 6 Rationale Addressing a longstanding challenge: What: reducing the administrative burden of enterprises in rural areas How: by reducing the information elicitation process of businesses

7 Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 7 Rationale Reducing the administrative burden is a priority for the EU Target 25 % reduction by the year 2012 i2010 guidelines research alone is not enough for ICT adoption actions needed: embedding ICT into products and services and the adoption of new business models, organisational change and skills.

8 Rationale In such a context: SMEs in particular have difficulties adopting ICT The problem SMEs face is even grater in rural areas To this end: Rural Inclusion examines and proposes solutions regarding the adoption of ICT from rural SMEs it introduces services that take advantage of the ICT infrastructure in order to reduce the administrative burdens for rural SMEs Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 8

9 Objectives Principal Objective To reduce the administrative burdens (ABs) of rural SMEs, 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 Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 9

10 Objectives Study and analyze ABs facing businesses in rural areas Identify public services that could be provided through e-government (eGov) Follow an analysis and modeling approach for such services, that will in turn lead to the semantic analysis and ontological representation of their stages, criteria, requirements, and outcomes Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 10

11 Objectives To deploy a number of innovative eGov services that will complement the provision of the selected public services, and will facilitate the interaction between the rural SMEs and the regional authorities To adopt and implement an innovative approach for the training of both staff of the regional public agencies and SME communities on the use of the deployed eGov services, aiming at a cultural change towards the use of online public services Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 11

12 Technology Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 12

13 Technology Rural Inclusion Platform: Incubator of three different, independent and well-defined components Semantic eGov eGovTube RuralObservatory2.0 Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 13

14 Semantic eGov The main bundle of semantic eGov services that helps reducing the administrative burden for rural SMEs, in regard to their transactions with regional public authorities [designed by NUIG & CERTH] Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 14

15 Semantic eGov Helps citizens and businesses find the specific version of the public services which addresses their needs and matches their profiles among a large number of service versions that a public service type has, through a user-friendly, self- explanatory interface that offers them the necessary guidance throughout the process. Informs citizens and businesses whether they are eligible for a specific public service. Provides complete and well-structured information for the identified service The component has been developed and deployed in the context of SemanticGov by the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (NUIG), Ireland and CERTH Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 15

16 Semantic eGov Incorporating semantic web technologies gives the following potential to Semantic eGov and Rural Inclusion Make use of the power provided by ontologies and reasoning. Thus the online structured dialogue does not have to comprise of predefined paths, but each time the next step is defined on the fly depending on the answers of the user. Update the content in a plug-n-play way. Once a new ontology is added, a new public service is made available through the Portal. Reuse ontologies already available online as building blocks for SemanticGov ontologies, for example ontologies that model citizens or public services etc. Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business.

17 eGovTube A semantically interactive web platform for knowledge and experience exchange between users related to facilitating the gradual adoption of the innovations proposed (i.e. the eGov services proposed by Semantic eGov and Observatory 2.0) in the target communities [designed and developed by CEDEP] Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business. Funded by Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Progrmme – ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) 17

18 eGovTube Evolution of CMTube, designed and developed by CEDEP based on latest web trends makes extensive usage of video, profiling, game dynamics, agents and network visualizations captures the attention and involvement of community member s Rural Inclusion: e-Government Lowering Administrative Burdens for Rural Business.
