Event Details

To take the pulse of public sector innovation this year, OPSI and the UAE Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation (MBRCGI) have identified and analysed 1 084 innovative initiatives from 94 countries around the world.

Through synthesising the identified projects and taking into account events, workshops and conversations held with governments around the world, OPSI and the MBRCGI have identified a number of key trends and case studies that illustrate them.

In the lead-up to the publication of the report Embracing Innovation in Government: Global Trends 2023 at the World Government Summit in February, join us in learning more about what we have uncovered, and hear about innovative projects from around the world directly from those leading the work.
