GovTech: Making a Difference in the Public Sector

In partnership with BUILD Lab at the IT University of Copenhagen, PUBLIC Denmark invites you to join this talk on making a difference with GovTech.

The GovTech Program is a challenge-based initiative, which seeks to initiate, support and bolster collaboration between the public sector and technology companies with innovative solutions.

The program invites Danish and international tech companies to bring their most innovative and value-adding solutions to the public sector. The companies with the most promising ideas will be invited to join a 5-week PoC phase that includes a bespoke market dialogue with government officials and domain experts. In the final phase, the program presents a number of recommendations on how the given challenge could be solved. Companies participating in the program receive economic compensation for their efforts.

The 2nd round of the GovTech-Program features 6 real-world, public sector challenges that are currently open for applications. Join the talk to learn more about each challenge and how GovTech has an impact on society. Free coffee and cake will be provided by the university.

If you think your startup can solve one of the GovTech-Program challenges, submit your application by November 18th or show your interest here: https://bit.ly/2kNBs1S
