E-government research has become a recognized research domain and many policies and strategies are formulated for e-government implementations. Most of these target the next few years and limited attention has been giving to the long term. The eGovRTD2020, a European Commission co-funded project, investigated the future research on e-government driven by changing circumstances and the evolution of technology. This project consists of an analysis of the state of play, a scenario-building, a gap analysis and a roadmapping activity. In this paper the roadmapping methodology fitting the unique characteristics of the e-government field is presented and the results are briefly discussed. The use of this methodology has resulted in the identification of a large number of e-government research themes. It was found that a roadmapping methodology should match the unique characteristics of e-government. The research shows the need of multidisciplinary research.
