TICTeC brings together the world’s best Civic Technology researchers, practitioners and funders — but we can’t do it without financial support.
The Impacts of Civic Technology Conference (TICTeC) is the world’s only conference dedicated to exploring how Civic Technologies are impacting citizens, institutions and the development of digital participation around the world.
As Stefaan Verhulst from the GovLab at New York University puts it: “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.”
Where many tech conferences provide a platform for organisations showcasing new or existing digital tools or components, TICTeC is specifically focused on research. The majority of speakers will be presenting evidence-based research to demonstrate the impacts of Civic Technology.
Why does TICTeC matter? Because Civic Technologies represent the future of democratic engagement. TICTeC allows us to pause, examine what works, and, crucially, what doesn’t — and ensures that we are all on the right path to making the world more inclusive, more equal, and more transparent.
It’s one of the few opportunities for those working and interested in Civic Technology to come together in person to share experiences, knowledge, research, and code, to ensure that the wheel isn’t constantly being reinvented.
Sponsoring TICTeC helps you to:
mySociety is a charity and we rely on sponsorship to continue our TICTeC events and initiatives. We’re looking for sponsors to support our TICTeC Show and Tells in early 2021. Please refer to this sponsorship guide for information on opportunities available. We are also more than happy to discuss bespoke sponsorship options, so please feel free to contact Gemma Moulder if you’d like to chat these through.
Each year around 200 participants from over 35 countries gather at TICTeC. They include academic researchers, data experts, software developers, designers, students, government representatives, and campaigners. See below for a more detailed breakdown of TICTeC attendees.
