The aim is to develop an agile way of working to develop regulations that stimulate rather than hinder innovation. An important foundation in a policy lab is the ability to dare to experiment with the user at the center.
The policy lab can be a temporary effort or a more long-term and lasting effort. Orientation, aim and methods may vary.
Vinnova currently co-organizes, follows up and finances temporary policy labs (policy lab cases) with authorities within the framework of a government assignment. This is intended to both create demand for policy lab methods with authorities and build capacity among ourselves. Parallel work is also underway to evaluate the working method and to work for a more permanent and powerful structure around policy development.
Related investments at Vinnova are within the framework of testbeds, partnership programmes and strategic innovation programs.
