GovTech Conference: The Vision Beyond 2020

19th November 2020 - Manchester

“Our modern Industrial Strategy sets out the Government’s ambition to make the UK the world’s most innovative economy, and place us at the forefront of the technologies of the future. This means realising the potential of emerging technologies for all, including through delivery of high quality public services.”

The UK is considered as one of the most technically advanced nation in the world. Since the launch of the Government Transformation Strategy in 2016, a great amount of progress has been made to improve citizen centric service delivery, as well as building world class digital tools for civil servants in workplaces. Whilst significant progress has been made in digital government since the launch of the transformation strategy, more can be done to deliver citizen centric services that are delivered effectively.

Following the launch of the Government Technology Innovation Strategy, there has been more focus on digital technologies to be increasingly used across the public sector. The GovTech Conference will explore the challenges and opportunities that are available to deliver solution focused services. Issues around cyber security, AI Robotics and ethical considerations of data will also be highlighted. This event will provide delegates with an opportunity to hear industry leaders from government departments debate the future of technology in the government sector, how this can be implemented responsibly and what the governments digital transformation vision beyond 2020 should look like.

Join us for Salford Professional Development’s annual GovTech Conference where experts will examine key issues highlighted across government departments, share case studies on successful implementation of citizen centric services. Central to this, is the importance of collaboration between the private and public sector to improve service delivery.
