Unlocking thriving towns through digital innovation
Making the case for embracing innovation
Why tune in?
Struggling high streets, out of date processes, diminished community engagement and inability to share data plague local governments.
As technology and behaviours evolve, the public sector is often left scrambling to rectify policy issues and play technology catch-up, sometimes to the detriment of their local communities. Central government actively funds private sector innovation to solve a range of these issues from the complex to the niche.
Innovation and the digital transformation it triggers can seem like a future endeavour, a tomorrow problem, this feeling is compounded by local government budget issues and pressing challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic.
We want to lift the lid on innovative projects, demystify digital transformation, and showcase how through central government funded private sector collaboration projects, solutions have been created to tackle today’s most urgent challenges whilst preparing towns and cities for the future.
What's being discussed?
- Innovation funding and its benefits to local governments
- Authority challenges and digital transformation barriers
- Data accuracy, standardisation, interrogation, and integration
- Notable projects benefits of innovative initiatives
