Under the umbrella of the ISA² ELISE Action, the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC) has launched a series of webinars to investigate topics related to ‘location interoperability’ and the digital transformation (of government).
In this context, each webinar provides a “brief but detailed analysis of emerging topics supporting the generation and sharing of knowledge about location interoperability and digital transformation using sources from both research and practice”.
Webinars will last for 1h-1h30 (depending on the specific subject) and any interested person will be able to register and join. All webinars are recorded and slides and these recordings (as well as a summary) are published on JoinUp so anyone can follow the progress in the discussion.
What is the role of ‘geospatial’ (data, information, solutions, technology, thinking…) in the digital transformation of government?
The main focus of the webinars is to answer this key question by shedding light on emerging phenomena, raise awareness about innovative aspects related to location interoperability and digital transformation while generating interest for further research/piloting and discussion.
Furthermore, to give robust answers to the research questions involved, a peer and expert review process take place through public webinars for open debate and feedback. ELISE has covered many aspects in this context already but we want to know if you think we are looking at the right things in the right way: are some topics more important than others? Was there some aspect we missed that you know about? What else should we investigate and with whom?
The list of topics evolves based on stakeholder inputs. Check the list of the webinars already performed.
Additional topics for the upcoming webinars will be discussed with Member State representatives and included in this list throughout the ELISE action.
If you are interested in attending one or more webinars on topics that are relevant to you and participate in the discussions, do not hesitate to regularly consult this page and check the list of upcoming webinars.
All active participants will also receive a link to summary reports and related outputs from ELISE helping to guide your organisation/business through geospatial aspects of digital transformation, available later this year.
In addition, benefits of participation include:
- Free access to information about emerging topics related to the modernisation of public administrations
- The opportunity to raise awareness with a pan-European audience about interoperability and modernisation issues within ELISE’s scope
- The possibility to promote your activities/best practices/projects etc. in other ELISE outputs and events
