Call for blogs: Digital Transformation in the Public Sector Week 2023 #techUKDigitalPS

From Monday 24 April - Friday 28 April techUK's Central Government Programme is hosting Digital Transformation in the Public Sector Week.

From 24 – 28 April 2023 the Central Government Programme will be running our Digital Transformation in the Public Sector Week to explore the role the tech industry is playing to support transformation in the public sector.

A different theme has been assigned to each day of the week, and we want to hear thoughts from both SMEs and large companies their visions for effective digital transformation of the public sector and the emerging technologies and innovations that will make it work. We will also explore the importance of collaboration between Government and Industry to create a digital government and increase efficiencies.

The week will provide our members and stakeholders the opportunity to look in depth at the vital, innovative role they can play, and what the next leap in digital transformation in the public sector might look like.

If you would like to contribute, we would require a blog piece of around 400-600 words, a blog title, and a 150-character description for the sub-title. If you would prefer, you can also submit a video of no more than 90 seconds. You can read our contributor guidelines in more detail here. The blogs and video content will be featured on the techUK website and promoted via Twitter and LinkedIn throughout the week. 

Please send your blog or video through to [email protected] no later than Tuesday 18 April. 

The themes for the week are as follows:

  • Small but Mighty – Highlighting the innovative nature of SMEs and how transformative public services can be delivered with SME support.
  • Catalysts for change – What emerging technologies will be most important in accelerating digital transformation in the public sector?
  • Better Together – The importance of collaboration between Government and Industry
  • Navigating the DDaT Roadmap – How can industry help support the delivery of the cross-government roadmap for digital, data, and technology
  • Maximising Value – How the tech sector is helping the government to create lasting value in public services, through both direct projects and social value.
