The IFAAR institute receives a national research contract
The Swiss National Science Foundation has accepted a research project from IFAAR in the context of the „Science and Technology Cooperation Switzerland - Russia“ program. This is carried out together with the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) as well as the Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU).
IFAAR was mandated to manage the research project „Comparative e-governance between Russia and Switzerland – A systematic bilateral evaluation of eGovernment on national and regional level“. The goal of this scientific cooperation was to reveal differences and commonalities of e-government initiatives in both countries. The program analysed how well e-government initiatives of public administrations respond to the interest of citizens in Russia and in Switzerland. The idea of the project was to show differences and similarities as well as high potentials for improvement in each country. This unique international comparative e-government benchmarking project was ground-breaking for comparitive science in online-research on national and international levels.
