Who we are
The Observatory for Public Sector Innovation (OPSI) is a global forum for public sector innovation. In a time of increasing complexity, rapidly changing demands and considerable fiscal pressures, governments need to understand, test and embed new ways of doing things.
OPSI works with governments to understand and encourage new approaches to address society’s complex problems by empowering public servants with new insights, knowledge, tools and connections to help them explore new possibilities.
We value curiosity, understanding of people’s needs, a systems perspective and openness to new opportunities. From our innovation specialists’ first-hand experience working in government, we know that an innovative public sector makes better policy, builds constructive partnerships and delivers better outcomes.
Since 2013, we have built our strong reputation on our expertise in global trends, sustainable development goals (SDGs), transformative technology impact, public sector innovation systems, and innovation skills, processes, and methods. Our team connects and convenes innovators world-wide and directly advises leaders of public sector innovation in OECD member countries and beyond.
