Building the Smarter State 2020

16-17 September 2020 


Entering its sixth year Building the Smarter State (formerly techUK PS2030) is techUK’s flagship Public Services Conference. This year, the conference will take place online. 

For the last five years the conference has successfully attracted digital leaders from across the breadth of public and the private sectors to showcase how technology is shaping today’s and tomorrow’s public services – helping to build a smarter state.

Last year’s conference explored the twin themes of People & Places, looking at how public services are being transformed by tech across the country, and what that means for the future of the public sector workforce. This year, the conference will move online and we'll be moving the debate on to look at the role digital plays in driving business change across Government. Our speakers will reflect on the future of transformation in Government, and the legacy of the COVID-19 crisis in terms of procurement, innovation, and the enabling role of tech in informing what the smarter state will look like.

Senior leaders from industry and the civil service/public services will discuss how digital tech can align with and inform a department’s policy objectives, to help improve the organisation’s end-to-end operations. The better the gap between digital and policy can be bridged, the better the public can be served. This conference is all about how we can bring that about and deliver business change at pace across the public sector.
