OPSI and the MBRCGI have worked in partnership to determine which set of innovative practices can best support collaboration to tackle cross-border issues, including a variety of inputs.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of collaboration across borders at all levels of governance, as governments respond to shared challenges characterised by greater interconnectedness and complexity. During the session, Government beyond Recovery: Towards a future-fit public sector, OPSI and MBRCGI presented their findings on the nature of the challenges for innovating across borders, as well as welcome experts and practitioners from around the world who have come up with innovative solutions to these challenges. The launch of the report Achieving Cross-Border Government Innovation: Governing cross-border challenges was also announced during the session, which serves as the first report in a series of three on different aspects of cross-border innovation.
