Welcome! The World Wide Web Consortium invites all who work within governments or those who work or engage with governments to participate in the many opportunities sponsored by W3C and the Web community.
W3C's eGovernment Activity currently offers speakers, discussion forums, educational information, and guidelines focused on helping governments to publish data in open, standards-based formats so that information can be more easily accessed on the Web.
W3C organized two eGovernment workshops so far:
After those workshops, meetings and discussions with many stakeholders, there are several key lessons learned that should serve as the basis for future work at W3C. Please see the separate page on eGovernment findings to learn about those.
eGovernment is the use of the Web and other information technologies by governments to interact with the citizenry, between departments and divisions, and with other governments.
