Save the date for the second instalment of the Digital Leaders Public Sector Innovation Conference.
Following the enormous success of the first Public Sector Innovation Conference in November 2018 we are returning to this important topic a year on. In the intervening year we have seen an explosion of AI, the mainstreaming of Innovation programmes in new departments and across Local Government, as well as a further year of the Govtech programme.
We have split the day into three themes with space to develop discussion at a policy, delivery and expert level:
Firstly we will hear from the Office for AI and discuss how we can utilise AI across the whole of Government. Paying particular attention to the government’s AI and Data Grand Challenge which has been updated in September this year to focus on how AI can transform the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases; as well as providing solutions for challenges that come with our growing ageing society.
The next theme will involve innovation in the health sector where looking back since the last conference there has been lots of great progress made by a wide variety of organisations often collaborating across sectors. The official launch of the NHSX initiative in July has prompted lots of impressive work into improving NHS productivity through digital transformation, reducing the burden on clinicians and staff.
Finally we will review Govtech initiatives and their impacts a year on. Focusing on how cross-sector collaboration between emerging tech businesses in the private sector can create innovative solutions for use across the whole of the public sector. As part of this theme we will be celebrating 4 great examples of public sector innovation that have gone on in the last year.
