Driving Innovation in Public Sector

CivTech
Scotland House Brussels

Scotland House Brussels is delighted to invite you to join our interactive event on digital innovation co-hosted by CivTech Scotland, GovTech Lithuania and Accelerate Estonia, as part of this year's EU Industry Week.

Digitalisation is at the core of Europe's future. To drive this transofrmation, the public sector has a key role to play in supporting SMEs to develop innovative and exportable technologies. This session will explore proven methods of digital innovation, including through GovTech programmes, and show how these solutions are delivering better outcomes for citizens using digital technologies in their day to day lives and shaping their interaction with government and society.

Join us for an interactive and engaging 90 minutes and experience why a challenge based approach to procurement is delivering outstanding improvements in public service delivery. As well as hearing reflections from two of Europe's leading female entrepreneurs, Vicky Brock (Vistalworks) and Mayri Tiido (Excess Materials Flow) on how the entrepreneurial mindset is accelerating public sector culture change, this event will look at best practice for government innovation, and for entrepreneurs looking to work with governments, provide tips and tricks to form long lasting, valued relationships.
