Deputy Director Anthony Cresswell will present the Center's work in developing a capability assessment model for information sharing and will facilitate a discussion about current practices in capability assessment. Attendees will have the opportunity to react to the research findings and discuss how their agencies determine readiness to invest in new and innovative information technologies.

CTG Partners with Two EU Projects
With a new $90,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, we will explore two European Union initiatives using the models created in our Modeling Interorganizational Information Integration project. The EU projects include an IT project for urban regeneration called IntelCities, headquartered in Manchester, England, and an effort to create open source software standards that could be adapted and used by European governments called COSPA.
