Innovation Week Programme Final 


Innovation Week Welcome

From Minister Michael McGrath, TD


Innovation Week 2020

The second Public Service-wide Innovation Week took place from 19 – 23 October 2020. Public Service Organisations were asked to put a spotlight on innovation within their organisations for that week. Given the circumstances, the Innovation Team developed a programme of online events throughout the week that aimed to capture the interest of our wide and varied public service. Where possible, organisations were asked to run their own mini hackathons, collaborate on initiatives or events with other organisations, invite speakers to discuss aspects of innovation, publish innovation-related material on their internal communications platforms and so on.

Innovation Week is an opportunity for organisations to use Innovation Week to drive the innovation agenda as part of a much larger effort in order to understand more about the imperative to innovate and also the opportunities to deliver better and more efficient services to the public.

The DPER Public Service Innovation Team is available to support organisations and liaise with nominated Innovation Reps by providing printed Innovation Week posters, email banners and other branding assets that can be used.

We have asked Innovation Reps to let us know of their Innovation Week programmes at innovation@per.gov.ie.
