The fourth industrial revolution – digitalisation – has forced us to change the way we live, work and relate to one another. The speed, breadth and depth of this digital revolution led countries to rethink the way governments operate and citizens interact with public administrations. The real challenge yet, is for governments to adapt and find ways to provide to an ever increasing number of people digital skills, in order to make a positive impact in their organisations and broader community.
A rising number of institutions, including the European Commission, are now offering trainings on topics related to Digital Skills in the Public Sector. Similarly, the Hertie School’s Centre for Digital Governance, and Bocconi University’s Department of Social and Political Sciences are hosting a series of seminars on Public Sector Digital Transformation.
The series consist of five virtual lunchtime sessions that include:
- Shaping Digital Europe 2040 – Artificial Intelligence & Public Sector Innovation in a Data-Driven Society (27 October);
- The Legitimacy of Algorithmic Governance (17 November);
- E-Government in the US (24 November);
- Trustworthy Digital Government (28 November);
- Ethics in Digital Public Services (3 december).
In each session, renowned scholars and PhD researchers share research-led evidence on achieving more efficient eGovernment and Digital Public Services.
This seminar series is organised in the framework of CIVICA - The European University of Social Sciences, and is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
