Attend techUK’s annual Local Public Services Innovation Summit where we will convene local authorities with tech industry to showcase good practise and facilitate greater collaboration between councils and industry. 

The event will focus on what more needs to be done to harness innovation in the sector to help create more resilient and productive local public services. 

At this critical juncture for many local councils, this Summit will put the spotlight on good practise happening across the country as well as explore how we create the conditions for innovation to thrive, enabling the technologies of today and tomorrow to deliver improved and more resilient local public services and outcomes. The Summit will look at how we rethink procurement processes so they become an enabler of innovation to future proofing the workforce for the council of the future.

This is a free to attend event for public sector and techUK members. Join us as we rethink how councils’ services are delivered and the role innovation and technology can play in helping local authorities meet their pressing challenges.
