Let’s innovate across Suffolk!

A unique opportunity to promote your innovative ideas and solutions at our Innovation Showcase…

Finding innovative ways of delivering services is essential, not just to meet the financial challenges but also to deliver more effective services which better meet the needs of users and communities across Suffolk. Digital; networked and cutting-edge technologies can provide part of the solution. In Suffolk, we are grasping the opportunities that this brings and are engaging with innovators to explore ideas and solutions to enable us to deliver services, manage demand and facilitate transformation.

Articulating Council challenges and priorities is key. At this Innovation Showcase, innovators can:

• Hear first-hand about Suffolk County Council’s exciting new Digital Strategy which will underpin innovation usage going forwards (Council priorities and sample strategy themes are attached)

• Demonstrate technology and provide information to inspire staff from across Suffolk County Council departments and other councils to stimulate awareness of how innovation can help

• Talk to staff about how products and services could potentially support and transform their work

In the afternoon, the Digital Strategy will be formerly launched with a motivational guest speaker at a special management meeting which innovators can also attend. Staff will be tasked with describing how they will take forward ideas and solutions they have seen in the Innovation Showcase earlier on in the day; plans for continuing and building those conversations and the support available to them.
