The GovTech Summit 2019 will be taking place on 14 November at Palais Brongniart – register now.
We are excited to once again invite you to Paris to join the GovTech Summit, to re-imagine the future of public services and to place Europe at the nexus of technology and government.
Last year, we were delighted to be joined by key figures like Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, and Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, as well as over 1500 entrepreneurs, investors, technologists and public servants. It was an amazing event.
But the GovTech Summit this year will be even better. We will grow the GovTech ecosystem further, bringing more members into our community of innovators. We will debate the future of key technology debates such as data in government, innovation across cities, the impact of AI on democracy, as well as the potential of technology to transform key public services such as health, transport, defence and justice.
The debate about how to responsibly bring new technology into government has never been more urgent. Europeans have a proud tradition of world leading public services – of investing time and resources into welfare, public health and city administration.
As technology transforms all industries, it will also transform the public sector and the services we all benefit from. We must ensure that this transformation not only maintains our services and the values that underpin them, but that the services are equitable, personalised, cheaper, responsive as well as responsibly delivered. To do this, Europe must lead on the GovTech globally – and we hope that the GovTech Summit acts as a catalyst to a truly dynamic, European technology sector.
Many thanks to President Emmanuel Macron for his continued patronage and support, and to our sponsors for their assistance in making the GovTech Summit possible.
We hope you share our vision and we can join us in Paris on November 14th for the GovTech Summit in 2019. We are at the beginning of a journey that we all have the potential to contribute to and shape, for the benefit of our fellow citizens.
Daniel Korski & Alexander de Carvalho, Chairman & Vice-Chairman of the GovTech Summit
