Building the Smarter State 2023

Building the Smart State is techUK’s flagship public services conference and the go to conference for public sector digital leaders. 2023 will see it return for the ninth year and focus on the most pressing and important topics for public sector digital transformation.

The annual event brings around 200 senior leaders and decision makers from across the public sector – most notable central and local government – together with the technology industry to showcase how technology is shaping todays and tomorrow’s public services – helping to build a smarter state. Previous speakers have included Chief Digital and Information Officers from across the biggest Whitehall departments, local government, and cities.

Building the Smarter State curates a day of leading public sector innovators and offers opportunities to network, build new relationships to solve common challenges within the smarter state.

This year the conference focuses on innovation and impact within the smarter state. Exploring how technologies of today and tomorrow are transforming some of the most pressing challenges our society and public sector organisation faces. With the launch of the Science and Technology Framework earlier this year there is no better time to convene key stakeholders to discuss how we not only make the UK a science and technology superpower by 2030, but ensure our public services are at the forefront of this in a smarter state.
