Dear Wolf Siegert,

The Global Design Thinking Alliance (GDTA) and the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) are happy to invite you to the Global Design Thinking Conference 2021: Policy Innovation Lab – from local to global, which will take place online on September 2nd, 2021 from 9:00 am - 9:00 pm (CEST).

The public sector needs to accelerate and streamline administrative processes, work more effectively, and expedite decision-making. But how does the digitization of administrative processes make governments more innovative and human-centered?

To discuss this and related questions, this year’s Global Design Thinking Conference will become a one-day virtual Policy Innovation Lab with contributions from around the world. We will bring together experts on local and global transformation to showcase and discuss cutting-edge innovations in the public sector.
