Policy Innovation Forum

About Policy Innovation Forum

Would the innovation ecosystem be entirely different if designed by the industry alone?

Attend Policy Innovation Forum to hear from top global enterprises and public institutions about their opinion on what policy imperatives are needed to facilitate and encourage innovation and where they see further public-private collaboration to foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.

We gather policymakers - ministers, mayors, legislators, and government representatives - for an exclusive peek into their opinions and the challenges they face. We will feature the best policy practices from around the world and what needs to be further changed/ adapted in regions, countries, or local municipalities.

Get a preview of where the next disruptors and policymakers intersect. Innovation industry leads and disruptors themselves explain how creative change and resultant resistance affect your business, the global economy, and society at large.

Topics include

This forum is industry agnostic. The agenda features public-private collaboration case studies.
The Conference programme includes curated discussions on how to improve the state of collaboration for innovation between public administrations, business, and academia. Sample topics are:

Public-Private Partnership: A way of the future? Policy Sandbox: a playground for innovators Is Privacy a public good? Innovation in the public sector Inclusive Innovation: a recipe for growth
