2nd International EIBURS-TAIPS Conference:
La conferenza internazionale EIBURS-TAIPS è organizzata dal dipartimento di Economia dell' Università degli Studi Carlo Bo di Urbino ed è alla sua seconda edizione, finanziata dall'European Investment Bank.
La conferenza si svolge nelle sale del Palazzo Battiferri di Urbino.
The conference offers a new occasion for in depth discussion on the changing role of public sector in innovation, with a specific focus on the development of web-based services.
This issue ranks very high in the political agenda of the renewed Lisbon Strategy and opens up novel challenges to scholars and practitioners. Indeed the introduction of digital technology and the provision of e-services can be seen as fundamental drivers for the efficiency of public administrations, for the diffusion and generation of knowledge, and to improve the inclusion and overall performance of EU economies.
From this perspective, studies and reflections presented will cover themes analysed in a research project carried out at the University of Urbino on “Technology Adoption and Innovation in Public Services” (TAIPS) within the framework of EIBURS – European Investment Bank University Research Sponsorship Program.
Topics tackled in this second edition of the conference include:
the role of technical and organisational change in the development of new services the shifting boundaries, complementarities and mutual interdependencies between public and private providers, methods to measure and explore the provision of new public services, emerging patterns of innovation in public sector at the local and national levels, the economic and social implications of new service development.
A comprehensive overview will be offered on the state of research on the diffusion and adoption of public e services, ranging from e-government to e-health, e-education, e procurement, and intelligent transport systems.
