BRISBANE — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that the SAP Institute for Digital Government has officially opened its doors in Canberra and delivered its first research output, launched alongside five founding partners at the Australian National Disability Insurance Agency’s NDIS New World: Disability in the 21st Century conference.

The SAP Institute for Digital Government was established to spur public sector innovation. In collaboration with government agencies, universities and partner organizations, the Institute will drive innovation through digital technology for deeper policy insight and improved service delivery. SAP will offer resulting solutions to government agencies across Australia and throughout the world.

“The quality and innovative spirit of Australian public administration is widely recognized,” said Isabella Groegor-Cechowicz, general manager, SAP Public Services. “As a think tank, the SAP Institute for Digital Government will help conceptualize new service models that improve livability for all.”

The SAP Institute for Digital Government’s five foundation partners include the Australian Catholic University (ACU), the Australian National University (ANU), the European Social Network (ESN), the International Social Security Association (ISSA), and Australia’s National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

“It is impressive to see the launch of a think tank with a focus on how digital innovation can transform social protection,” said John Halloran, CEO, ESN, speaking at the launch of the Institute in Brisbane. “We look forward to collaborating with the Institute in areas of interest to our broad membership base across Europe.”
