THE GOVTECH SUMMIT

Organised by PUBLIC and supported by French President Emmanuel Macron, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo and the European Commission, the GovTech Summit gathers European leaders and innovators to explore how new technologies can improve public services and democratic practices.

The 2018 GovTech Summit featured more than 90 international speakers, covering topics from transport to healthcare, security to international development, e-government to citizen engagement.

The GovTech Summit reimagines services that place citizens at the centre of public delivery, where public servants have an array of technology-enabled resources and information at their fingertips, and can use new ways of delivering better, more efficient, more citizen-focused services.

We look forward to hosting you in 2019.

Program highlights

  • CAN DEMOCRACY SURVIVE TECHNOLOGY

    Technology, and in particular, social media, is completely transforming how we engage with politics. At the same time, our politics and democracies have never felt so divided. Recent elections and referenda around the world have been marred by concerns about the manipulation of the electorate through social media, while online ‘echo chambers’ are driving unprecedented levels of political tribalism. However, the future need not be bleak for our democracies in the age of technology. In this panel, we discuss how technology can be a force for good in modern-day politics, and how use it to drive political engagement that is constructive, informed, and rational.

  • ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN GOVERNMENT

    AI has been the hottest buzzword in tech for a long time, and governments are beginning to catch on. Gradually, governments around the world have started to explore the potential for smarter uses of public datasets to drive more efficient and targeted public services. Many of these early case studies have been extremely encouraging , and show the way for future data-driven governments. Despite this, the opportunity for AI in government has barely scratched the surface. Here, we discuss what we can learn from existing applications of AI in the public sector, and which sectors stand to benefit the most from AI going forward.

  • FROM LAB TO GOV: HARNESSING THE POWER OF INNOVATION

    It is not easy for governments to keep up with the pace of change in science and technology. Many European countries now have dedicated research and innovation units to ensure that they are always aware of the opportunities presented by new technologies. The key to creating and sustaining technology knowledge in government is to establish genuinely collaborative ecosystems, including innovators, startups, corporates, universities, and political officials. In this panel, we discuss how governments can better engage with cutting-edge startups and academic research to ensure that they are always aware of the art-of-the-possible in new technologies.
