Project Overview

With the increasing demand for the establishment of a specialized educational institution that can introduce Korea’s excellent e-government to developing nations and share knowledge with them in the area, the e-Government Global Academy was established on January 2013 as the attachment to the National Information Society Agency, the informatization institution of Korea.

The Global Academy has developed various e-government and ICT-related education & training programs, and provided them for government officials from developing nations. Furthermore, it is supporting informatization consulting for developing nations by nurturing global e-government consultants. The Global Academy will do its utmost to achieve its vision of becoming the world’s best e-government & ICT academy. And based on Korea’s world-class e-government, the Global Academy will contribute to enhancing the informatization level of nations around the world, playing a pivotal role for the prosperous future of mankind.
