Event Details

On Wednesday July 8th, the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Opening Governance* and Nesta will hold a public workshop on innovations in governance. The event will focus on lessons learned and remaining questions related to innovations in health and wellbeing, Internet Governance, and economic development, among other areas of public concern. In particular, the event will explore: 

  • new means for quantifying our communities and ourselves to improve decision making; and 
  • how collective intelligence and networked expertise can help solve public problems. 

Members of the Network, including Beth Simone, NoveckSir Tim Berners-LeeDeborah EstrinGeoff MulganErik JohnstonStefaan Verhulst and others, will seek to engage you in a dialogue to the end of collaboratively developing a clear understanding of where we stand in regard to governance innovation and how we can make progress toward identifying and operationalizing what works in practice. 

We hope that the opportunity to hear about the findings of the Network and share your own experiences and insights will be useful for strengthening the community around governance innovation – in London and beyond – and give you the opportunity to forge new collaborations with those active in the field.  

Registration opens at 2.30pm with the event starting promptly at 3.00pm and followed by networking drinks at 6.00pm.
