GovTech in The Netherlands: building a leading GovTech nation

The City of The Hague and the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations have commissioned PUBLIC from London to write this report on the state of the GovTech market in The Netherlands. GovTech is the application of new technologies and business models - primarily driven by partnerships with startups and scaleups - to improve the design and delivery of public services. PUBLIC finds that The Netherlands embodies many of the pre-conditions for a strong GovTech sector, but also that GovTech in The Netherlands is still a nascent phenomenon.
