Innovation Capacity in the Public Sector

Booth 8, 07/11/2013 (18:00-19:30)

This networking session comprises innovation-driving projects to enhance Public Sector Innovation as a corner-stone in implementing the Digital Agenda. They will be a strong force in driving innovation in society, changing attitudes and thereby open up and contributing to new cost-effective solutions. As an actor, buyer and customer, the public sector can stimulate and aid innovation and growth by opening new markets and enabling new business ideas. ICT is a strong enabling tool in this iterative dynamic process. This way of bringing up and disseminating new ideas generates new markets for companies, innovators and entrepreneurs and stimulates Public-Private-Partnerships. In short, innovativeness in the public sector is vital, both to ensure a stable economy, technical development and to create future commerce and growth. The development of an innovation-oriented public sector goes by stimulating and enabling investment in research and innovation activities. Show cases from calls for RTD proposals in Sweden where drivers with innovative ideas to turn-around administration in the government have been funded and worked in new kind of partnerships.

Agenda 7 Nov 18.00-19.30. Introduction by VINNOVA.
