Building the Smarter State campaign week 2020 | #techUKSmarterState
How can business change be delivered at pace across the public sector and the legacy of COVID-19 on procurement and innovation #techUKSmarterState.
We are delighted to be running a Campaign Week in the run up to techUK’s sixth annual flagship Building the Smarter State conference which is taking place online from 16 – 17 September. For the last five years the conference has successfully attracted digital leaders from across the breadth of the public and private sectors to showcase how technology is shaping today and tomorrow’s public services – helping to build a smarter state.
Returning for a sixth year, this year’s conference is looking at the role digital plays in driving business change across Government, the future of transformation in Government, the legacy of COVID-19 in terms of procurement and innovation, and the enabling role of tech in informing what the smarter state will look like.
Through blogs and case studies this week will look at what the smarter state might look like, how technology can drive business change across the wider public sector, how technology can improve citizen outcomes and keep us connected, how the gap between digital and policy can be bridged in order to transform public services and the lessons learnt from COVID-19 – the legacy it has left on procurement and innovation and how this can be harnessed in building the smarter state.
