Data has become a major agent in transforming the public sector. However, there are many remaining questions to address in order to harness the full potential that data brings into play. What is good or bad data respectively? What strategies are there to differentiate among the two kinds? How can good data be used by governments to create public value? And which guidelines do governments need in this regard?

By answering these questions through an interdisciplinary and practice-oriented approach, the conference strives to enhance the digitization of Swiss governmental organizations and contribute to its resilience.

Our conference offers a variety of formats, from presentations, to world-cafés and a panel discussion, to bring practitioners from the public and private sector together as well as researchers and international key figures, to engage in an open dialogue about the transformative power of good data.

The main language of the conference is German.
