Electronic infrastructures are becoming fundamental resources for supporting activities across the public sector in areas such as eGovernment, eResearch and eHealth. The drive towards building a smart society requires the federation of services and reduction of fragmentation, the improvement of security and access to data and resources, developing interoperability to avoid vendor lock-in, and educating the next generation of users and developers to benefit from such technologies. In short, advances in eDevelopment and eInfrastructures can lead to far-reaching improvements for all levels of society.
