Title: “Examples from leading-edge practical and academic works on discovery and management of knowledge and technology: CEES, UbiPOL, STORK, GEN6 and BIHAP initiatives”
Abstract. The speech will bring leading-edge practical and academic works on discovery and management of knowledge and technology, benefiting from CEES, UbiPOL, STORK, GEN6 and BIHAP initiatives. CEES has aimed to develop a methodology for managerial evaluation and improvement of e-government services from the viewpoint of citizen users. UbiPOL was a recent project on using mobile devices for enabling citizens’ involvement in local government policy-making processes, incorporating also information mining and sentiment analysis for the use of public officers. At a Pan-European scale, STORK initiatives enable inter-country services for authentication and data access, and GEN6 project supports institutions to transform their electronic services using IPv6, which could have significant implications for academic learning and research. BIHAP is a Turkish project that maps the knowledge assets of the Ministry of Development with potential impacts for various institutional and societal development. It is hoped that all these projects and initiatives complement each other to provide a comprehensive and enriching perspective for ICKM2014.
