The GovTech Summit 2020 

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. 

Now in it's third year, the GovTech Summit has been supported by French President Emmanuel Macron, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo and the European Commission. Organised this year by PUBLIC and UNBOUND, it is an unparalleled opportunity for public servants, startups, technologists and investors to ignite conversation and connect with the people who can unlock their potential to improve public services and empower citizens.
