    Biographical Statement

    Tomasz Janowski is a Senior Research Fellow at the United Nations University International Institute for Software Technology in Macao SAR, China where he founded and heads the Center for Electronic Governance. Previously, he was a Research Fellow at the University of Warwick, UK, where he obtained PhD in Computer Science and Assistant Professor at the University of Gdansk, Poland, where he obtained MSc in Applied Mathematics. He also worked in software industry in Poland and the U.S.

    Tomasz’s research focuses on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance (EGOV) including foundations, education, development, measurement, etc. He directs EGOV research, transfers research results into policy instruments, and applies such instruments in EGOV practice. Under his leadership, the Center developed a capacity-based development framework EGOV.*; built instruments to support the use of this framework; applied the framework in Afghanistan (EGOV.AF), Cameroon (EGOV.CM) and Macao SAR (e-Macao); and contributed to EGOV awareness- and capacity-building in many countries including Argentina, Bahrain, Brazil, Brunei, Chile, China, Colombia, Cost Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Estonia, Ghana, India, Jordan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, Nigeria, North Korea, Oman, Palestine, Philippines, South Korea, Tunisia, Uganda and Vietnam.

    Tomasz is one of the earliest proponents of connecting EGOV research and practice – he founded and coordinates the series of International Conferences on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV). He is an Associate Editor of Government Information Quarterly (Elsevier), co-chairs the EGOV Interest Group at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), serves on the editorial board of the Journal of E-Governance (IOS Press), is a member of the IFIP Working Groups 5.5 and 8.5, and has been a conference, programme, track or mini-track chair at 19 international conferences, program committee member at 79 conferences and a reviewer for 20 journals. Tomasz is regularly invited to speak at international conferences and to participate in expert group meetings; recently, he chaired the Jury of the Sultan Qaboos Award for Excellence in e-Government in Oman and was part of the United Nations expert group on the UN EGOV Survey 2014. His projects have been funded by Macao Foundation, World Bank, Microsoft, UNDP, European Commission and several national governments.
