GovTech events

GovTech Leaders Gathering

In addition to the GovTech Leaders conference on May 9th, GovTech Lab together with the CivTech Alliance is hosting the GovTech Leaders Gathering!

The event will take place in person in Vilnius on the 10th-12th of May. It will gather GovTech programme leaders and representatives from numerous European countries, the US, Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand. The three days will consist primarily of workshops with topics ranging from programme management and business case development to procurement and contracting models, capacity building, impact and evaluation. There will be time for networking and conversations between peers.

This event is organized in cooperation with UK Science and Innovation Network and British Embassy Vilnius. This is an extraordinary opportunity to meet and learn from GovTech programs’ representatives. This gathering will be a continuation of the workshop held in Hague during GovTech Summit with more than 24 organizations present.

The capacity for the gathering is very limited, but if you are a leader of the GovTech programme in your country, please contact for the invitation.
