Save the dates – 9th to 13th December, 2019
The first Public Service-wide Innovation Week will take place from 9-13th December this year and all Public Service Organisations have been asked to place a concentrated focus on innovation within their organisations for that week. Organisations may wish to run their own innovation weeks, organise innovation events such as hackathons, collaborate on initiatives or events with other organisations, invite speakers to discuss aspects of innovation, publish innovation-related material on their internal communications platforms and so on.
We want organisations to use Innovation Week to drive the innovation agenda as part of a much larger effort in order to understand more about the imperative to innovate and also the opportunities to deliver better and more efficient services to the public.
The DPER Public Service Innovation Team is available to support organisations and liaise with nominated Innovation Reps by providing printed Innovation Week posters, email banners and other branding assets that can be used.
In addition, we are asking nominated Innovation Reps to let us know of Innovation Week plans at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can then support promotional efforts through our social media and website.
The main event during Innovation Week is the Innovation Conference on 10th December in The Printworks, Dublin Castle. In the morning we will have an exciting programme of speakers followed by ‘Innovation Faster Classes’ in the afternoon.
