From Crisis to Recovery
The GovTech Summit brings together the world's brightest technological innovators with Europe’s leading public sector decision makers to rethink how governments can operate and thrive in the new post-COVID-19 world. Taking place on the 29th September, this virtual event will offer you access to some of the most prominent political and public figures leading Europe's accelerating transfer to the digital economy and recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.
