Abstract: This article summarises the main messages from the Lift off towards Open Government Conference, held on 15-16 December 2010, organised by the Belgian Presidency of the EU Council. It aims to disseminate these messages to the research and practitioner communities and to contribute to the current policy debate on the prospects of e-Government, now being shaped and implemented on local, regional, national and pan-European levels. First, the article outlines the progress of the EU discourse on e-Government also providing a brief overview of the evolving academic debate on this domain. It then introduces the current policy framework for Open Government in Europe and worldwide and provides an analysis of the key policy challenges discussed during the Conference. It concludes with the main messages that emerged, and gives an overview of future prospects and the possible directions the policy agenda for a European Open Society could take.
