Sponsor innovation-led purposeful societies which are healthier, happier and more sustainable, co-created by progressive responsible businesses, an enabling government and citizen participation. 

Sponsor innovation-led purposeful societies which are healthier, happier and more sustainable, co-created by progressive responsible businesses, an enabling government and citizen participation. 

Sponsor and participate in deep dives of the issues affecting business leaders, policymakers and society in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, data governance, supply chains, citizen participation, enterprise adoption of future-tech, skills transformation, innovation, investment trends, industry sectors and markets.


Sponsorship helps us to raise the ambition of what can be achieved. Fees are used to sponsor research which underpins the thought-leadership and evidence meetings, secretarial support (for APPGs) and administration, logistics and the activities themselves. None of the programmes, including those happening in UK Parliament or elsewhere, are supported by allocated government funding or tax-payment.

All-Party Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence (APPG AI) was created in January 2017 to explore the impact and implications of AI. Since its launch, APPG AI has been building a strong evidence-base for decision-makers (inside and outside UK Parliament) to shape informed policies and best business practices around the development and deployment of AI technologies. We unpack AI’s economic, social, and ethical implications and have been focusing on key policy areas such as: data, skills, entrepreneurship, ethics and accountability, infrastructure (physical and digital) and trade. 

Since 2019, and for 2020-2021, we have moved the conversation into action, and are now ‘embracing’ the AI revolution. 

Our four pillars are:

Enterprise Adoption of AI

Data Governance

Citizen Participation

Education

Activities

Each year, we host ten meetings in Parliament (seven evidence sessions; three hot topic debates over private dinner; one reception) and produce several outputs, including: seven Parliamentary Briefs, an AI 101 course for parliamentarians, ad-hoc themed reports, public surveys and video recordings of evidence meetings. 

On top of this, we run taskforces (on data governance, education, enterprise adoption of AI, education, internationalisation of AI, and more), in which we develop protocols for AI adoption. 

And we host AI demo-showcases in Parliament, as offered by our partners (e.g. on neural networks, AI in music and creative industries, and more).

Note: we have introduced webinars, as an alternative (as applicable during the global health crises COVID-19 pandemic).

We are also building a global community around AI and landscaping its contributors to AI: sectors, companies, investors, developers. More on this here: https://www.innovationeye.com/


Open for evidence, input and participation

The All-Party Parliamentary groups of which we are Secretariat are made up of Members from the House of Commons and Members from the House of Lords, entrepreneurs and business leaders across industries and secrets, expert academics, think-tanks, any stakeholder group, regulators and policy makers. 

Each evidence meeting is also open for the public via a booking system and all meetings are recorded made available online. Press are invited too. 

The Secretariat – Big Innovation Centre – operates as a coordinator and research hub.


Sponsorship

The groups are business-backed through sponsorship, which is aligned with business size. Two years of commitment is important for long-term policy making, programme planning and community building.

All-Party Parliamentary Group on Blockchain (APPG Blockchain)

Together we shape the policy ecosystem and digital infrastructure needed for the development and deployment of blockchain, distributed ledger technology (DLT) and related technologies as RegTech, Fintech, GovTech, Smart Contracts and more.

Particularly, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Blockchain (the APPG Blockchain) aims to further understand the business model and policy/regulatory implications of Blockchain and DLT and how blockchain is best implemented into all private and public sectors throughout the economy (finance, cryptocurrencies and the token economy, insurance, healthcare, energy and environment, creative industries, next generation services (professional services, consulting legal), education and research, charities and NGOs, agriculture and food, manufacturing (manufacturing, FMCG, construction and pharma), logistics and transport and national security and defence. 

Each year, we host ten meetings in Parliament (seven evidence sessions or launch sessions); two hot topic debates; one reception) and produce several outputs, including: seven parliamentary briefs or ad-hoc themed reports, lLive and recorded blockchain show-cases, and video recordings of evidence meetings.  

We have blockchain for Government Council taskforce meetings throughout the year, in which we develop protocols or blue-prints for Blockchain adoption into public services (such as Smart cities, climate change, sport games, healthcare or other).

Note: we have introduced webinars, as alternative (as applicable during the global health crisis COVID-19 pandemic)
