The Institute defines digital government as the production and access to data, services and content, sourced and distributed across the digital ecosystem, to create public value (derived from the OECD definition of digital government).

Our Partners

We are delighted to partner with the SAP Institute for Digital Government on researching important issues relating to use of digital technology in the public sector. We have depth of expertise in data analytics, digital support for decision making and complex service delivery that we will harness for this collaboration with SAP as it works to support the development of digital government processes relating to social protection.

It is impressive to see the launch of a think tank with a focus on how digital innovation can transform social protection. Public social services organisations are under continuing pressure to deliver efficient and effective services in rapidly changing social and economic conditions. We look forward to collaborating with the Institute in areas of interest to our broad membership base across Europe.
