The Centre for leadership and innovation in e-governance was opened on the 5th of November in Vinnytsia national technical University. Its main users will be students of the Faculty of Information Technology. It is also planned that the Centre will serve as a platform to conduct distance learning courses developed in the framework of the EGAP.
The processes of e-democracy are very important for the formation and development of the country in the modern information society. The opportunity of using ICT for decision-making processes for citizens is one of the basic tenets of e-democracy.
This was discussed in an international conference "The Essence and the perspectives of introducing e-democracy in Ukraine" in VNTU, in which participated over 50 people.
Centers of leadership and innovation in e-governance are created in the framework of Swiss-Ukrainian programme "E-governance for Accountability and Participation Program" (EGAP), which is implemented by East Europe Foundation in partnership with the State Agency for e-governance and the Foundation Innovabrigde.
