As you see the pre-conference is directly linked to the topics of the 5th Ministerial eGovernment Conference: Teaming up for the eUnion (, 19-10 November, also in Malmö. The Ministerial eGovernment Conference – like the European eGovernment Awards 2009 ( presented at an integrated exhibition of the 52 Awards finalists and a ceremony on 19 November announcing this year’s winners – focus on eGovernment supporting the Single Market, eGovernment services empowering citizens and businesses as well as eGovernment enabling administrative efficiency and effectiveness.

The key-note address will be delivered by Swedish Minister for Local Government and Financial Markets, Mr Mats Odell and a dinner will be hosted by Vinnova and City of Malmö in the evening at the old City Hall.
