Hi Paola,

Here is my understanding of the issue. 

The discussions of this group engage members of both research and
practice communities working on EGOV-related issues. As such, the
group is a natural forum for evolving and early testing of ideas, and
finding partners willing to work on them towards joint research,
projects and, eventually, grant proposals, public contracts, etc. 

It does not mean that the group or W3C in general will officially
support or provide a stamp of approval to the projects or proposal
resulting from such discussions. It is another process (leading
towards W3C standards) entirely. 

So, to answer your questions: 1) supporting project and proposals -
no, facilitating discussions leading towards them - yes; and 2) the
group's discussion mechanism already allows identifying partners and
posting notices of EGOV-related efforts. 

But I am new to W3C. Perhaps Jeanne will want to correct or expand
this answer.

Many regards,
