Abstract

Recent developments on ICT innovations like Internet of Things, Cloud Computing and Big Data encourage further the design and application of "Smart" e-Government Systems and applications to citizens and business. These smart systems are aiming to improve further everyday lives, expand business frontiers, and facilitate the movement of citizens by reducing the constraints imposed by existing borders between Member States of a federation like in cases of the European Union, USA and Eurasian Economic Union. Also, these systems provide the means to combat more effectively international terrorism, fraud and crime and many other areas in Banking, Health, Justice, Forensic and Crime sectors of bilaterally or globally worldwide interrelation. To the above important application areas, very new should be added, huge in extent and immense in importance areas of Life Sciences. More specifically, such Smart Cross-Border e-Government Systems will be characterized by their ability to be used by governmental organizations, citizens, business and any combination thereof per two independently of their location and nationality, in a cross border environment, under the provision there exist in both sides the necessary electronic authentication, identification and signature support service. Early this year, strategic policies and successfully implemented European Union projects have led to the availability of e-Authentication, e-Signature and e-Identification platforms. Therefore, the late technological advances dictate to redesign of existing and design of new Smart Cross-Border e-Government Services and Applications fully exploiting the ICT innovations and capable to satisfy the requirements of the systems above.
