On Wednesday July 8th at 3:00pm, the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Opening Governance and Nesta will hold a public workshop on innovations in governance. The event, Data-Driven & Collaborative Solutions: Current Findings of the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Opening Governance, will focus on lessons learned and remaining questions related to innovations in health and wellbeing, Internet Governance, and economic development, among other areas of public concern. In particular, the event will explore: 

  • new means for quantifying our communities and ourselves to improve decision making; and 

  • how collective intelligence and networked expertise can help solve public problems.

The public forum will seek to highlight findings from the Network and assembled participants around governance innovation and provide an opportunity for those in attendance to forge new collaborations.
