More Efficient Governance with Proactive Services and E-voting

Life event-based and pro-active digital services are offered to citizens based on an observed life-event or predicted service need without the citizen purposefully asking for or applying for the service out of his/her own initiative. These services would greatly simplify interactions with the state as relevant public services would be automatically offered to individuals when they become eligible due to a specific life event. For example, an automated kindergarten and school placement/Information system that would be triggered when children become of appropriate age.

Such a transformational redesign of how governments offer services is only possible when digital governance infrastructure and data sources are mature enough to enable the sharing of life-event information between registries to make precise predictions of a service need.

Our research team offers know-how and high-level competence in developing solutions for personalized predictive services. Such competence may be of most interest to governmental bodies and service providers. We are looking for collaboration on technology development and international cooperation.
