The 2010 Government of the Future Summit


Convening just two days before the June European Council, the Government of the Future Summit convened under the timely theme of ‘Exiting the Crisis: Citizens, Society and State Transformation in the 21st Century.’ Organised by the Lisbon Council, in collaboration with the College of Europe and Accenture, the summit brought together senior government and civil service leaders to explore key themes such as innovation in the public sector and providing more and better services despite strained government finances.  The summit was kicked off by Pier Carlo Padoan, deputy secretary-general and chief economist of the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) who delivered The 2010 Jean Monnet Lecture on ‘The Challenge of State Transformation in the Post-Crisis Era.’ The summit also launched a new publication, Building a Better Future in an Age of Transformation which summarises four case studies on state transformation prepared by Collge of Europe Students.
