eGov Lunch

The eGov Lunch, held four times a year, presents a current and innovative initiative in the use of new information technologies by the state and public sector. The informal setting of the eGov Lunch encourages constructive dialogue between representatives of the federal government, cantons, municipalities, associations, universities and private companies.

The keynote presentation and the discussion provide an insight into the latest developments and opportunities offered by the use of information technologies by the state and the public sector. The ensuing business lunch offers the ideal opportunity to exchange initial ideas and to network.
