TICTeC 2019

19th & 20th March 2019, Paris

Register Schedule

Returning for a fifth year, TICTeC 2019 will focus on the impact that civic technology and digital democracy are having upon citizens, decision makers and governments around the world.

Primarily, the goal of TICTeC is to promote and share rigorous and meaningful research into online technologies and digital democracy around the world. The conference facilitates discussion and networking amongst individuals and groups to find real-world solutions through sharing evidence of impact, and (importantly) evidence of what doesn’t work.

In association with the OECD, TICTeC 2019 will bring together individuals from academic and applied backgrounds as well as businesses, public authorities, NGOs, funders and education institutions to discuss ideas, present research and build a network of individuals interested in the civic technology landscape. See who’s previously attended TICTeC.

Journée de la civic tech & de l'engagement citoyen, 18 March 2019 (event in French)

In France over the last few years, local and national governments, companies, NGOs and the civil society have started experimenting with civic technologies. From crowdlaw experiments to participatory budgets, digital tools are used for a variety of objectives, but the results of these initiatives are rarely evaluated. Do they really support transparency, collaboration and participation? Are they inclusive, and under what conditions? To discuss these issues, the NGO Décider ensemble and the CESE (French Economic, Social and Environmental Council) have organised the French civic tech and citizen engagement day, on 18th of March in Paris. Roundtables and workshops will focus on findings from the first civic tech experiments in France, as well as on the first results from the « national debate » which is currently taking place. The event will be in French!
