PIDoT – Public Sector Dreamhacks ?

There are numerous think tanks, events and conferences on innovation, cases, technologies and policy.

While valuable, there is a lack of action in them. They do not generate innovations as such.

A Public Innovation Do-Tank (PIDoT) brings together citizens, public service organizations as well as businesses to produce a specific innovative proposal, for instance a prototype.

The goal of the this workshop is to :

  • Plan one or more Do-Tank events in 2013
  • Establish contacts with potential partners in different countries.
