Reframing Rules and Regulations for Innovation

Feedback form is now closed.
Bureaucracy and red tape are often seen as the main barriers to innovation, particularly in the public sector. But to what extent rules actually do inhibit innovation? This session discusses considerations governments can apply to tackle both the specific rules and procedures which may be blocking innovation, and the wider context preventing civil servants from trying new pproaches. It also discusses potential strategies for countering those rules that are perceived, but do not actually exist on paper.
