Invitation to participate in our Building the Smarter State campaign

techUK will be holding a ‘Building the Smarter State’ campaign week from 03 – 07 September to coincide with our flagship public sector conference taking place on 06 September, and we would be delighted to have members and stakeholders contribute to it.

techUK’s Building the Smarter State will put the spotlight on the emerging technologies shaping the public services of today and tomorrow. It will also look at growing the GovTech market and creating the environment that incubates innovation. We want to continue the conversation throughout the week and are inviting industry and stakeholders to share what their vision of what the smarter state is and how we can get there.

We are looking for members and stakeholders interested in providing input to the week, which will centre around five key themes:

  • Connected cities and connected citizens
  • SME’s and partners working with public sector
  • Emerging tech to deliver 21st century public services
  • Managing change in public services
  • Making it personal: The importance of ID, security and trust

If you would like to contribute please can you email Ellie Huckle by Friday 17 August. The deadline for content to be submitted is Friday 24 August. You can learn more about our contributor guidelines here.
