TALKS & DISCUSSION: Global Trends 2020 launch & insights from the edge

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is an era-defining crisis that continues to unfold, capturing the attention of governments worldwide, who must grapple with its consequences for society, the economy and the future. While COVID-related efforts remain a key focus for governments, it is important to recognise the many other innovative actions that they are taking to better achieve their missions and build strong foundations for addressing present and future challenges.

OPSI and the UAE’s Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation (MBRCGI) have spent much of the last year working to understand how governments are confronting these challenges. Through this work, OPSI and the MBRCGI are issuing five reports through 2020 (https://trends.oecd-opsi.org) that identify key trends and case studies of innovation. This session will serve as the launch of the final report in the series, and the leaders behind projects featured in the reports will present on their innovative initiatives.


  • Abeer Tahlak, Director, Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation
  • Mikk Vainik, Head of Accelerate Estonia
  • Marco Daglio, Head, Observatory of Public Sector
  • Teemu Roos, Lead Instructor, Elements of AI
  • Sue Stevenson, Director of Strategic Partnerships and International Development, Barefoot College International
