NOVA - norm creative innovation

To reach the height of innovation, we need to challenge norms. For support, Vinnova has produced the method material NOVA. With this, it should be easier to achieve inclusive innovation processes for solutions that contribute to a more equal society.

We use artificial intelligence (AI) to translate the content on our website. This web page has been machine translated. If there are any uncertainties, please refer to the Swedish text.

Norm-creative innovations can cover everything from less stereotypical products and services to more inclusive environments and social contexts. Nova focuses on norms that discriminate, but the content is useful in all innovation contexts. The material is based on the seven grounds of discrimination that are regulated by law: gender, gender identity or expression, ethnic affiliation, religion or other beliefs, disability, sexual orientation and age.

NOVA's method package

I NOVA has concrete tools and hands-on methods for anyone who wants to create inclusive, norm-creative solutions. The material is based on practical experience and research from a variety of project and studies. The format is chosen to promote creativity and collaboration in workshop form.

NOVA's method package consists of a main material (box with guide and card game) and a support material (handbook, dialogs, presentation template and lecture template). Below you can download the material in its entirety. The box with guide and deck is also available in physical form.

This is an educational tool for those who lead project teams or teach standard creative innovation processes to students. The manual gives examples of how NOVA can be used through
a whole project period. We have to follow three innovation teams as they take on different assignments. projects
are of a different nature and the project group is faced with various challenges during the course of the work
they solve using NOVA's method material.

Dialog screens

The dialogs can be used to test and train the innovation team in working with an inclusive, norm-creative innovation process. You can choose from four dialogs that present different assignments that the team will take on. In these, the methods from NOVA are selected in advance to suit the given assignments. There is also an empty dialog that you can use to develop your current project. Feel free to print the dialogs in A1 format so there is plenty of room.
