In this paper, we will explore the concept of innovation and discuss how government bodies can implement it. We will discuss the roles of government in using innovation in the service of their citizens and residents. This role has multiple facets, including the implementation of public policies that foster the emergence and growth of innovation ecosystems, and innovation within government agencies to improve efficiency and create tangible value for citizens.
We will examine how governments embrace innovation, the keys to their success, and the challenges they might face. Through examples of successful government-led innovations, we will present solutions used by different governments to achieve their goals.
