24 & 25 March 2020
Thanks to generous support from Facebook, Luminate, Google, Balsamiq, the MacArthur Foundation and Citizens Foundation, mySociety hosted the sixth TICTeC virtually on 24 and 25 March 2020. TICTeC 2020 was meant to take place in Reykjavik, Iceland, but due to the global coronavirus pandemic was held virtually instead. Over 250 people from over 30 different countries attended the virtual event; thank you to everyone who came and everyone who presented their work. Resources from the conference can be viewed below. Carry on the discussions, networking, and sharing of your civic tech research and experiences over on the TICTeC Google Group.

“The size of TICTeC has always been manageable and lends itself well to deeper conversations than huge global conferences”
— Nicola Anand, formerly Reboot and The Engine Room
“Many ideas and references from these TICTeC sessions have been essential in generating the framework for my current research”
— Pablo Aragón, Universitat Pompeu Fabra
“Each year, I can count on TICTeC to expose me to a more global collection of civic tech work than I’d otherwise see and challenge me to rigorously consider the impact of my and my peers’ work”
— Matt Stempeck, Civic Hall
“TICTeC has been a great way for me personally as a relatively new person in the field to get exposure to new ideas, connect with incredibly helpful people, and to generally learn about new trends from around the world.”
— Eric Reese, Director, GovEx Academy, Centers for Civic Impact | Johns Hopkins University
