The OECD is developing an Observatory of Public Sector Innovation (OPSI) which will become a platform for producing, sharing and disseminating knowledge on public sector innovation. In particular, the Observatory will systematically collect, categorise, analyse and share innovative practices from across the public sector, via an online interactive database.
The Associate Group is the main vehicle through which the OPSI will connect with entities outside the public sector to tap into relevant knowledge on public sector innovation.
The first meeting of the OPSI Associate Group (Paris, 18 March 2013) will be an opportunity to bring together interested parties from academia, research bodies and the private sector to identify ways of working together so that examples of innovation can be further developed and diffused in order to maximise their impact in public administrations.
This first meeting of the Associate Group will:
- Explore interest in forming a network of non-government partners with relevant knowledge and expertise on public sector innovation to contribute to the OPSI activities;
- Identify concrete areas of collaboration between the OPSI and members of the Associate Group, including supporting OPSI research, developing case studies of innovation and organising seminars and events to disseminate good practices;
- Gather and disseminate information to ensure research cross-fertilisation and strengthen knowledge on public sector innovation.
