Institut für den öffentlichen Sektor e.V.
The Berlin based Public Governance Institute (Institut für den öffentlichen Sektor e.V.) was founded in 2005 on behalf of KPMG's German Public Sector Practice. As a think tank it conducts research in the fields of public management and public corporate governance and aims to promote high performing government. It regularly publishes study reports and policy-papers. The quarterly journal “Public Governance”, edited by the Institute, provides in-depth information for board members and decision makers in politics, public administrations and state-owned enterprises. In 2016, the institute launched its initiative myGovernment, aimed at providing a networking platform for young technology companies and public sector organisations.
It promotes the cooperation of public administrations and local government with startup-companies to pave the way for the development of smart cities in Germany.
The institute is supported by a distinguished advisory board and cooperates with academic institutions. Prof. Dr. Gerhard Hammerschmid, professor at the Hertie School Berlin, acts as scientific chair.Website
