Transformative public sector and civil society

We want to make it possible for civil society and the public sector to conduct innovation work. We also want to strengthen the ability to mobilize for long-term and sustainable processes that are based on governance, working methods and culture, follow-up and regulations.

This web page has been machine translated. If there are any uncertainties, please refer to the Swedish text.

We will focus efforts that give leaders and employees organizational conditions, knowledge and ability to contribute to innovation and conditions for innovations to be able to develop.

We also want to continue to develop collaborations with other authorities to integrate innovation aspects.

The public sector and civil society are needed in innovation projects

In several of our offers, we target project groups where public actors and civil society are important partners.

In order to drive the societal change required to achieve sustainable development, the public sector is an important and often fundamental player. In civil society, which has historically been crucial in strengthening society's ability to adapt, there is great potential for creating both movement towards and acceptance of necessary changes.
