Philipp Lemmerz

This talk discusses the role of governments in innovation from the perspectives of regulatory function and its potential impact, being an adopter of technology, and its interventions to spur innovation in private sector.

While showcasing these through cases-studies, this talk will also explain the interesting shift in governments’ role from subsidiarity to collaboration, and the balance between its foundational and infrastructural contribution and the benefits it receives in return for its interventions.

Philipp Lemmerz is the Government & Public Sector Consulting Director, PricewaterhouseCoopers
