Covid-19 has accelerated the rate of digital adoption across Whitehall. From the technical development work behind the furlough scheme, to data analytics tools to predict demand on the NHS, innovation has underpinned the pandemic response.
In February 2022, the New Statesman will be launching a digital and print content programme, with an exclusive online section dedicated to the subject matter, hosting all editorial and partnered features, podcasts, videos and data charts, as well as publishing a printed Spotlight supplement, bound into the magazine. The programme will focus on how government departments and public sector organisations can continue to harness the benefits of cutting-edge technologies as the UK emerges from the pandemic. Featuring ministers, senior civil servants and government technology leaders, this series will focus on the most significant digital challenges and opportunities facing the public sector today.
