Innovation is necessary for quality and efficiency. It is also crucial to be able to meet societal challenges and achieve the goals in Agenda 2030. Facts about what the situation looked like in Sweden were, however, previously deficient.
Now, for the second time, innovation work in the public sector has been mapped through the survey " Innovation in the public sector 2019-2020". The survey was conducted by Statistics Sweden in collaboration with Vinnova. Several thousand respondents participated in the survey and during this seminar the new results will be released.
The purpose of the survey is to better understand innovation and innovation activities in public activities. We hope that the survey will be useful in decision-making, debates and research.
The survey was conducted in collaboration with SKR, Mälardalsrådet and others. It was carried out in 2021 as a follow-up to the survey study Innovation Barometer, which SKR, Sweden's municipalities and regions carried out with the support of Vinnova in 2018.
Surveys were sent to innovation managers / heads of municipalities within all government agencies and all municipalities and regions in the country, as well as to approximately 5,000 public workplaces. The questionnaires asked questions about strategy, actual innovations and innovation activities, actual innovations in the workplace and innovation activities.
At this seminar, figures from the survey are presented together with reactions from respondents and a panel discussion with the public sector, SKR and others.
