Government AI Readiness Index Launch – May 15th 1400 UTC

Dear All,

There is an error in the invitation I sent, the interview is May 15th 1300 UTC , An hour before I said so, as I had forgotten that London is currently GMT+1/UTC+1.

The time is London 1400/UTC 1300.

The info in the event bright link is correct.

Sorry for the error,


I am transitioning to a new email address: [email protected]
