It is important that cities and regions work with creatives and entrepreneurs when it comes to innovation and development of the public sector, but the involvement of creative entrepreneurs can be difficult. The Danish government’s latest growth teams and many other advisory committees before this directly recommend that the public sector should become better at working with creative entrepreneurs, so how can one work towards that goal?
On 14 October from kl. 9.30 – 12.30, we are giving you our take on this important agenda when we in collaboration with the City of Copenhagen open the doors to the conference “Innovation in the Public Sector” at Copenhagen City Hall.
You will experience:
Panel 1: How can the City of Copenhagen improve the collaboration with startups to encourage innovation and their participation in public projects – international public sector perspective
Panel 2: How can the City of Copenhagen improve the collaboration with startups to encourage innovation and their participation in public project – private sector perspective
Pitching competition – here, five entrepreneurs pitch their solutions on match-making unemployed with relevant companies in the City of Copenhagen.
We hope that you will contribute to the debate. On the day, we collect written input from the participants for our further work. At the same time, you also get ample opportunity to network with both speakers, entrepreneurs, and relevant actors in the Danish ecosystem
