Innovation Starts With You: How to Unlock the Positive Potential of Government
In light of recent developments related to the novel coronavirus, and the Faculty’s decision to suspend organisation of large gatherings, this event is postponed until further notice. A new date and time for the event will be scheduled as soon as the situation allows and will be published on the Faculty’s website and social media channels.
Confronted with an ever-growing number of complex challenges, governments are increasingly called on to devise new and viable solutions to problems citizens face in their everyday lives. To be able to do so, public institutions need to employ innovative techniques and the latest know-how in the formulation and delivery of public policies.
What does it mean to innovate in the public sector? How can governments leverage innovation tools and methods to deliver better services and policies for citizens? How can you become a policy innovator? If you’re curious to hear more, join us on 20 March for a discussion with Andrea Garaiova, Executive Director of the Center for Policy Innovation.
When? Friday 20 March, 17:00
Where? Faculty of Political Sciences, Lecture Hall 3
