Across the world, public administrations are undergoing an extraordinary transformation. A new generation of technology is changing the way local and national governments collect taxes, deliver services, distribute welfare, maintain security, and more. Stories of failed IT projects in government are, however, legion. How can governments then make best use of so called “GovTech"?
At this staatskantine event we'll be joined by Kiann Stenkjӕr Hein, Managing Director of PUBLIC Danmark and former senior civil servant in the Danish government, who will share how she is fostering a “GovTech" ecosystem in Denmark and connecting start-ups with public administration.
The event will take place, as usual on the first Thursday of the month, on October 1st, 2020, from 12 to 1.15pm. Registered attendees will be sent a Zoom link in advance.
The event is aimed at public sector employees. You bring your own lunch, we provide a speaker with interesting points of view and space for a lively conversation. To ensure an engaging debate places are limited. Please register for the event using this link.
This staatskantine will be held in English.
