An official website of the OECD. Find out more
Created by the Public Governance Directorate

This website was created by the OECD Observatory of Public Sector Innovation (OPSI), part of the OECD Public Governance Directorate (GOV).

How to validate authenticity

Validation that this is an official OECD website can be found on the Innovative Government page of the corporate OECD website.

On 12-13 November 2014, the OECD held an important conference. More than 400 people answered the call for action of the OECD Secretariat. The role of government is more challenging than ever, and the need for public innovation greater than ever, to find solutions to the challenges we are facing as a society.

An innovative public sector?

Last week over three hundred people from the public, private and civil society sectors descended on the OECD in Paris. Why? To discuss an innovative public sector. For some of you that might sound like an oxymoron, but over two days stereotypes were left at the door as participants shared stories and learnt about innovation in the public sector.
