About Fredric Skargren
I am a PhD student in Informatics at Örebro University and also working as an analyst for the Swedish Agency for Digital Government. I hold a bachelor degree in European Studies from Malmö University, and an MSc in Political Sociology from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
I have several years of professional experience in working with practical and strategic perspectives on questions of information management and open data as well as strategy and actions-plans for digitalisation within the public sector.
My PhD-research is in the field of e-government. From a general perspective my research is looking at questions around the use of different methods for measuring digitalisation within the public sector and how they can be utilized to improve performance and quality. More specifically I have together with colleagues developed a digital index for measuring levels of e-government and constructing it as a tool for leaders and public officials to stimulate a learning environment, and critically engagement with the opportunities and pitfalls of digital government.
