Milestones & Achievements

What Edge of Government Achieved So Far?

Since 2016, The Observatory of Public Sector Innovation has worked with the Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation to conduct a global review of the ways in which governments are transforming their operations and improving the lives of their people through innovation. This process has included extensive research into innovations from OECD member countries and non-members alike, as well as an open call to send in projects. The Edge of Government then brings the most exciting and relevant innovations together into an inspiring, annual showcase.
