Innovations in Government Program

The Innovations in Government Program was one of the world’s premier academic entities for recognizing and promoting excellence in the public sector and fostering innovative policy solutions to the 21st-century challenges of governing. The Innovations in American Government Awards, which recognized hundreds of public-sector programs for excellence and creativity, was a principal initiative of the Program. An archive of all previous award winners remains available. Work advancing public-sector innovation continues throughout the Ash Center’s other programs and within Harvard Kennedy School. Examples of research and teaching around government innovation can be found in the Kennedy School’s programs, projects, and initiatives on cities and communities; science, technology and data; social innovation and philanthropy; public leadership and management; and much more.
