The OECD Observatory for Public Sector Innovation (OPSI) serves as a global forum for public sector innovation, helping governments to understand, test and embed new ways of doing things through the application of fresh insights, knowledge, tools and connections. The Observatory and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation (MBRCGI) partnered to conduct a global review that explores how governments are innovating and taking steps to make innovation a routine and integrated practice across the globe.

The review included extensive research and a global Call for Innovations crowdsourcing effort, which collectively identified 542 innovations from 84 countries for analysis.

The report contains different types of case studies focused on three key trends in government innovation:

Trend 1: Invisible to Visible

Trend 2: Opening Doors

Trend 3: Machine-readable World

These trends in government innovation highlight novel opportunities and forecast new possible futures.

 

 

Trend 1: Invisible to Visible

Leveraging new methods, tools and technologies to transform the invisible to visible, allowing governments to see and understand insights, perspectives, opinions and possibilities that have previously remained hidden, allowing them to become more effective and make better decisions.

Case studies:

  • Carrot Rewards – Canada
  • Finding Places – Germany
  • Zika Mozzie Seeker – Australia

Trend 2: Opening Doors

Governments are increasingly looking for ways to improve citizen participation in democracy, government benefits and the economy. Rethinking the traditional role of government and opening doors to new economic services and opportunities, as well as providing access to justice and society for marginalised populations.

Case studies:

  • Sharing economy for government spaces – Netherlands
  • Recyclables as transportation fare – Indonesia
  • Transportation as a Benefit – United States
  • Clear My Record – United States

Trend 3: Machine-readable World

Building a machine-readable world comprised of bits and bytes that mirror the physical world in digital form, thereby unlocking public information for mass electronic consumption, reimaging foundational government practices and fuelling the next generation of innovation through emerging technology

Case studies:

  • Better Rules – New Zealand
  • Machine Learning for Land-mapping – Australia
  • Counterfeit medicine detection using blockchain and AI – Mongolia
