The global home of civic tech impact research
TICTeC stands for ‘The Impacts of Civic Technology Conference’. Since 2015, TICTeC has been an unmissable annual milestone, convening an international mix of researchers, practitioners, policymakers, philanthropists and tech giants to examine how civic technology is shaping society.
What makes TICTeC unique is its focus on high quality impact and research, with international leaders in the field sharing experiments, evidence and experiences from around the world. TICTeC is a safe place to examine what works, what doesn’t and how best this can be measured, so that better tools can be developed in future.
TICTeC is more than an annual event: it also promotes civic tech impact research and reflection in other ways, such as via the TICTeC Local conferences and the TICTeC Seminar series. Details of past and upcoming TICTeC events are below.
“TICTeC is a crucial milestone in the development of civic tech and open government, because it takes stock of what we know, what works, and how.”
— Stefaan Verhulst, The GovLab @ New York University
“TICTeC is the best concentration of practitioners, academics, and thinkers in this field that I've come across anywhere.”
— Fran Perrin, Indigo Trust
