EC to evaluate e-government services and high-hit Web sites

The European Commission has asked for bids from organisations to carry out a Web-based survey on electronic government services.

Its aim is to benchmark member states' e-government activities by measuring which of the basic public services are online and their levels of sophistication.

In a separate research project the commission has appealed for IT research teams to become involved in a project to identify common content characteristics of the most internationally popular European Union-designed Web sites.

Its directorate general for Information Society said it wanted to "benchmark availability and usage of European digital content," focusing on sites receiving the most hits in EU member states plus Norway, Iceland and the US.

The commission aims to identify and characterise the most visited and most popular content. Brussels thinks that by exploiting the cultural diversity of the EU, Web site designers can build a stronger market presence.
