    Biographical Statement

    Dr. Tomasz Janowski is the founding head of UNU-EGOV.

    Previously, he served at the UNU International Institute for Software Technology as Senior Research Fellow (2009-2014), head of the Electronic Governance Programme (2004-2014) and Research Fellow (1995-2002 and 2004-2009). His positions outside UNU include Assistant Professor at the Institute of Mathematics, University of Gdańsk, Poland (2002-2004) and Research Fellow at the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick, UK (1994-1995).

    Tomasz is the founder and coordinator of the International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV), which he has led through eight editions in Macao, Cairo, Bogota, Beijing, Tallinn, Albany, Seoul and Guimarães to becoming the largest EGOV research and policy conference globally. He serves as Associate Editor of Government Information Quarterly, Member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Public Administration in the Digital Age, co-chair of the World Wide Web Consortium EGOV Community Group and International Advisor to e-Government Chapter of the China Information Association.

    Tomasz published over 200 research and policy papers and reports; presented more than 60 keynote and invited lectures and organized more than 90 conferences, schools, workshops, etc. in over 40 countries; and developed and coordinated more than 30 research and development projects funded by Macao SAR Government, the World Bank, Microsoft, UNDP, European Commission, Commonwealth Secretariat, etc. He was the chief juror of the national EGOV Awards in Saudi Arabia and Oman, a jury member of the EU e-Government awards and EU Smart Crowdsourcing Challenges, a reviewer of two editions of the UN EGOV Survey and several national EGOV policy instruments, and a reviewer for more than 20 scientific journals. Most recently, he contributed to defining the methodology, adopted by the Government of Colombia, for establishing the Government Chief Information Officer function, completed the development of the Mobile Governance Strategy, adopted by the Government of Vanuatu, and the Commonwealth MGOV Toolkit for Small Island Developing States, and led the development of the concluding chapter of the “Final WSIS Targets Review – Achievements, Challenges and the Way Forward” produced by the UN Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development.

    His research interests include Policy-Driven Electronic Governance (which term he invented), EGOV for Post-2015 Development, Government Information Networks and the Government Chief Information Officer function. He holds PhD in Computer Science from the University of Warwick, UK, and MSc in Applied Mathematics from the University of Gdańsk, Poland.
