Digital Innovation is about the incubation and catalysation of ideas, learning and innovative technology solutions. In order to address the complex and interrelated issues in society, completely different and innovative approaches must be taken.

Agile methodologies as well as those of open innovation, behavioural science and design thinking are increasingly being applied to tackle problems that are faced by public sector and charity organisations as well as in larger corporations and SMEs. New ways to collect, use and govern data are producing more responsive services and systems that can prevent and predict health problems or critical infrastructure failure.

These innovations don’t just save money but can save lives and lead to long term societal resilience as their real life applications can be rapidly prototyped, scaled and deployed. Innovation helps government and business master the emerging technologies they need to accelerate digital transformation and continually improve their outputs.
