David Osimo joined in 2008 Tech4i2 ltd as Director. He has 15 years of experience as advisor on information society and innovation policies in a variety of settings, inside and outside government, at local and international level, his latest assignment being coordinator of eGovernment research at the European Commission Joint Research Centre (IPTS). He is mostly recognized as a leading expert on web 2.0 in government, but he authored articles and reports on a wider variety of topics, including future government, public procurement, new innovation models, research policy, ICT statistics. He is an experienced keynote speaker but he also tries to make a difference as a policy “hacker”, as for example in 2009 when he designed the Open Declaration on Public Services (http://eups20.wordpress.com) and the Innovative and Creative Application awards (www.inca-award.be). He blogs at http://egov20.wordpress.com and tweets @osimod.
