What is the current crisis showing us about the ability of governments to respond to the unexpected in new ways? In this webinar the OECD's Observatory of Public Sector Innovation will share some of what it has seen from the innovative responses occurring in countries and discuss with some select public servants about what it’s like to innovate during a crisis, how different frameworks can help us make sense of what’s happening, and how innovative activity might shift over time as the crisis evolves (and hopefully resolves).

The webinar is part of our European Commission Horizon 2020 webinar series exploring topics in public sector innovation.
