Transforming into Open, Innovative and Collaborative Governments

New blog post: "Public administration collaboration and digitalisation in times of COVID-19. Lessons from Germany?"


Work Package 9: Effects of Collaboration for Government Efficiency


WP9 assesses the impact of novel open and innovative collaboration practices on efficiency including their potential effects on administrative burden.


To answer these questions, WP9 focuses on:

  • Effects and impact of innovative collaborative practices on public sector efficiency

We conduct:

  • a meta-assessment on red tape, addressing the effects of new rules and frameworks on government efficiency
  • the 'Collaboration Monitor' as an online tool to assess and compare practices in innovative collaboration
  • two policy briefs, one on red tape and the other on the efficiency indicators of the Collaboration Monitor
  • a working paper


The meta-analysis

This meta-analysis will address the efficiency effects of new rules and frameworks accompanying the exploitation of ICT for collaboration in policy design and service delivery, as well as by an innovative measurement of effects of novel collaboration practices on efficiency.


Collaboration Monitor

The 'Collaboration Monitor' will be an online tool, which can be used to assess and compare exemplary practices in innovative collaboration in policy design and service delivery. The measures for government efficiency detected in the meta-analysis will be mirrored to each collaboration practice in the 'Collaboration Monitor'.
