New report examines trends in government innovation

Government is perhaps not renowned for being particularly innovative, but a recent report from the OECD sets out to showcase some innovative government policies from around the world in recent years.

The report is the result of the work conducted by the OECD Observatory of Public Sector Innovation (OPSI), which was created in 2014 to identify the key issues for innovation in government.

The report provides a number of fascinating case studies of innovative government from around the world, including The Wellbeing Project, which aims to use data to provide more personalized services in California, the use of blockchain to allow Colombian expats to vote in elections and Virtual Warsaw, a virtual smart city to help the blind navigate Warsaw.
