The OECD Observatory of Public Sector Innovation (OPSI)  and its partners at the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation are excited to convene innovators from around the world for a conference on Innovation in Government: The New Normal on 20-21 November 2017. The conference will highlight insights from OPSI’s work with countries that are transforming their operations and improving the lives of their people through innovation. It will bring together government leaders, public servants, and innovative partners in industry and civil society to connect, share experiences, and collaborate.

We have developed a document outlining relevant logistical information for your attendance at the conference, including travel information and details on nearby hotels. You can find this at http://oe.cd/opsiconferencelogistics

Programme manager, public sector innovation
I work as a programme manager at Vinnova, the Swedish Innovation Agency, broadly with questions regarding public sector innovation. That includes strengthening the innovation capacities in municipalities, county councils, regions and governmental agencies. We work with testbeds in health care, schools and infrastructure, policy labs, idea hubs in municipalities and innovation management, incentive structures for innovation etc. Before coming to Vinnova five years ago I worked as a consultant a couple of years helping public actors in their innovation efforts. Before that I worked at the Swedish Association for Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR) with the same questions.
