Our Story

Out of the complexity of the COVID pandemic, the urge for a transformation and transition to a digital society became a top priority, as did the need for decision makers, policy practitioners, and politicians to deepen their understanding of digital technologies as enablers for economic recovery, and as a tool to respond to shared social challenges.

 

In line with this new reality, the PIT Policy Lab was born in 2020 as C Minds’ first independent spin out and as a key founding partner in change. Working in the field of Public Interest Technology towards advancing agile policymaking, the PIT Policy Lab builds on top of sound foundations created through years of multiple stakeholder engagement to craft solutions to complex challenges.
