“Innovation Labs for Transformation Policy: Why and How?”

The BMZ digilab together with the Unit  Z10 (Moderne Verwaltung) are pleased to invite you to our Brown Bag Lunch on 07 December  2022, 12.00 – 13.00 CET on the topic of:  

“Innovation labs for transformation policy: why and how?”.

Innovation labs in politics and administration enable further development through flexibility and willingness to experiment. They bring together experts, researchers and innovators and work on problems in a targeted and wide-ranging way. This can result in visions for the future, directions and recommendations for action, which the respective stakeholders can translate into needs-based activities and further develop in a sustainable manner.

We ask questions and get answers:

  • What are innovation labs in public administration?
  • When and how can they be successful?
  • What contribution can they make, for example, to the digital transformation of politics and administration, and what challenges do they face?
  • And how can an innovation lab contribute to the goals of German development cooperation

Anne Kruse, project manager from the Berlin City Lab, the public innovation lab of the city of Berlin, and Martin Jordan, Head of Design at DigitalService GmbH des Bundes, will be our guests as experts.

The goal of an innovation lab in public administration can be, for example, to modernise the administration and to advance its working methods or internal digitalisation with new methods. Dedicating oneself to specific issues, examining them from different perspectives and working out possible courses of action to improve them can also be part of the range of tasks.

If you are part of one of digilab’s partner organisations (BMZ, GIZ, BMGF or KfW) write us on digilab@giz.de to get the link to our event.

Warm regards,

Your digilab team
