Making progress on council collaboration

LocalGov Digital Makers, the design and development network from LocalGov Digital, today revealed plans to help create virtual teams, spanning councils and enabling better collaboration between organisations.

Makers project teams will use digital resources to work collaboratively to achieve common goals, to help break the cycle of building or buying the same functionality in every local authority.

They’ll be details of two pilot projects released over the next few weeks and if you’d like to talk about Makers Project Teams they’ll form part of the discussion at the Makers Meet-Up on 11 September. If you work for a council and want to come along then get in touch @LGMakers on Twitter, or through Google+.
