Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE)
Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE), a program initiated in 2005 by the National Science Foundation, seeks to catalyze a cultural change in U.S. institutions by establishing innovative models for international collaborative research and education. The program will enable U.S. institutions to establish collaborative relationships with international groups or institutions in order to engender new knowledge and discoveries at the frontier and to promote the development of a globally-engaged, U.S. scientific and engineering workforce. Successful proposals will describe excellent, focused science and engineering research projects that are based on integrated research and education efforts, and substantive intellectual contributions from international collaborators who bring unique capabilities to the research activity.
E-Gov Golden Book
The E-Gov Golden Book is an initiative of the World E-Gov Forum of 2006. It will feature biographies of 250 public and private sector individuals who have made a significant worldwide impact on the fields of e-Government and e-Democracy over the last five years.

European Union's e-government research website
This thematic portal is an online guide through all relevant European union policies and activities related to a new information age. It provides information to address the recent transformation in the industrial landscape of the developed world, which through telecommunications liberalization, the explosive growth of the Internet, and the increasingly networked nature of business and society, have led to the birth of the Information Society (IS).
Roadmapping eGovernment 2020
CTG partnered in this project sponsored by the European Commission, and led by the University of Koblenz in Germany, involving nine international partners from European regions, the U.S., and Australia. The project identified and characterized the key research challenges and possible implementation models for holistic and dynamic governments in 2020 and beyond. The project is global in nature and included a review of the current status of e-government research, followed by a series of regional scenario-building workshops in which government, academic, and other participants collaborated to describe possible futures.
