Narrow Water Castle

GovCampConnect is an un-conference event bringing the GovCamp model to Ireland.  The event will take place between Dublin and Belfast at Narrow Water Castle on 24 September. 

Since GovCamps are user-generated unconferences – anyone can pitch a session on the day. GovCamps have been a feature of the international digital government community for years, but GovCampConnect will be the first event of its kind on the island of Ireland. We’ve chosen an amazing venue halfway between Belfast and Dublin because important things are happening in both places and we want people to share their stories. 

The event is for anyone interested in how technology can transform government, including public servants, developers, suppliers and academics. Typical themes include digital transformation, open data, agile development, user-centred design, citizen engagement, open source, and smart cities. You can view examples of GovCamp sessions online.

If you would like to register please do so by clicking here – we look forward to seeing you!
