Accelerating the digital and technological transformation of social services by governments, public authorities, and agencies involved in their development and delivery is key to reach people in their homes and communities.

At the 31st European Social Services Conference (ESSC 2023) we will discuss how technological advancements can help to improve the delivery of social services by making access and sharing of information simpler, improving coordination between services, encouraging early intervention, supporting decision making, and promoting people’s autonomy and choice.

The conference will highlight research and practice on innovation in social services through technology; IT developments for social inclusion, accessibility, or autonomy; organisational and workforce improvements, or data management for decision-making.

The European Social Services Conference 2023 strives towards being a fully equitable, inclusive, sustainable and accessible event. The planning of every aspect of the conference is made in line with the guidelines for an equitable event, as laid out by the City of Malmö which also adhere to Sweden’s discrimination law which, among other things, imposes certain requirements for accessibility and specifies protection based on a number of recognized characteristics and forms of discrimination. The core principle of these guidelines is that every person is equal in dignity and rights, and therefore every person should have equal opportunities to reach their human potential. Key considerations have been made to ensure the sustainability of ESSC 2023. These include choosing a venue that is a LEED-certified building, minimising waste, in particular food waste, and promoting the use of public transport where possible.
