mission is to build global research capacity, to advance practice, and
to strengthen the network of researchers and practitioners engaged in
building and using technology and government. The goal of NCDG is
to apply and extend the social sciences for research at the
intersection of governance, institutions and information technologies.
For more information about NCDG, please read our Vision and Objective statements. And be sure to check out the News section for NCDG happenings.
From 2002- 2005, the NCDG was based at Harvard University. A successor program to NCDG, the Program on Networked Governance,
continues digital government research at Harvard today. The Program on
Networked Governance was founded by NCDG co-founder David Lazar and is
also supported by the National Science Foundation.
