Transformative public sector and civil society
We want to enable civil society and the public sector to carry out innovation work and strengthen the ability to mobilize for long-term and sustainable processes that are grounded in governance, working methods and culture, follow-up and regulations.
Ett Sverige where the public and civil society organizations have world-class innovative power that is fully used to effectively lead in a sustainable society is this area's objective.
In order to drive the social change required to achieve sustainable development, the public sector is an important and often fundamental actor.
In addition, civil society is an innovative force to be reckoned with and has a long tradition of developing innovative solutions. Much that we take for granted in welfare today, such as public dental care, care for the elderly and childcare centers, was originally created by people who organized themselves around a common idea to improve society. How can we make better use of civil society's ability to contribute to innovations for social development?
We direct efforts that give leaders and employees organizational prerequisites, knowledge and ability to contribute to innovation and prerequisites for innovations to develop. Within several of our offers, we target project groups where public actors and civil society are important partners.
This is how we want to contribute to transformative public activities and civil society
Vinnova works with several initiatives that concern how publicly funded activities and civil society can meet societal challenges and drive development towards a sustainable future. Below you can see examples of our efforts.
