For two years, Pilotprojektet Samverket has explored how coworking designed for the public sector can contribute to increased knowledge transfer and innovation through increased co-creation across business boundaries. The pilot project's two working hubs have been active in Stockholm and Östersund with members from municipalities, regions, county boards, state investigations, university colleges, universities and state authorities.
Just as coworking in business has proven to strengthen the innovative power of companies, Samverket has offered the public sector to meet across organizational boundaries in innovative environments, share important perspectives to jointly make a difference. The collaboration has inspired innovation all over Sweden and has also attracted international interest.
The project is now finished and during the Innovation Week 2023 the project presented the playbook compiled with the experiences and reflections generated by the project.
