Our goal is to strengthen the ability of public organization, experts and common people to work openly, collaboratively, effectively and legitimately to empower them to make better decisions and solve public problems.

In ADUi Lab for Governance, we believe that better policy designs, effective network and collaborative strategies, and increased use of data and technology help leverage the capacity, decision-making, and expertise of people in the problem-solving process. We deeply believe that trust and confidence in the public function can be regained and strengthened through continuous transformation and improvement in governance.
