SPOTLIGHT ON

Government Interoperability
CTG has published two white papers on government interoperability. The first paper, "Government Worth Having," is specifically to help government leaders understand the important role that they alone play in enabling-not hindering-more interoperable government. The second paper, "Improving Government Interoperability," is provided as a practical guide for those government managers responsible for turning interoperability goals into real capabilities. Both papers were written with support from Microsoft Corporation.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT

Building an international community of researchers
The 2008 iGov Research Institute took place in Manchester, UK and featured a week of site visits, research discussions, group projects, and social networking in which 20 doctoral students and ten faculty, staff, and mentors from around the world considered digital government research problems from an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspective. Representing Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa, and Australia, students came from 15 countries, 13 universities and six academic fields, including Public Policy, Information Science, Computer Science, Sociology, Environment and Architecture, and Organizational Studies.
