5th INNOVATION WEEK

The 5th Public Sector Innovation Week will take place in Brasília, Brazil, from November 4 to 7, 2019.

For the past five years, Brazil’s Innovation Week has become the largest annual conference on public sector innovation in South America. The National School of Public Administration of Brazil will host this year’s event in partnership with Brazil’s Ministry of Economy and several other institutions in the Brazilian Federal Government, international organizations, civil society groups, and private sector representatives.

The event’s goal is to fix the innovation agenda at the center of government strategy throughout South America, to accelerate progress towards meeting the challenges of 21st century governance, and to empower civil servants as protagonists of this process. With the theme “Government for the People”, this year’s conference will address topics such as User Experience in the Public Sector, Digital Transformation, Exponential Technologies, Evidence-based Policy Making and Artificial Intelligence in Public Policy.

The 5th Innovation Week is expected to gather about 1,500 attendants and more than 80 speakers during the 4 days of our event. It will also be broadcast live to over 10,000 government innovators all over the region.
