|Coordinator||JOHANNEBERG SCIENCE PARK AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 1 996 210|
|Project duration||October 2016 - April 2019|
Purpose and goal
The KIVI project has aimed to create greater understanding of how collaborative innovation processes, ie knowledge-creating processes in which parties participate as equal colleagues, work, what specific challenges exist, and also aimed at developing models, methods and tools to increase the collaborative innovation capability.
Expected results and effects
The project has created increased insight and awareness of the challenges and benefits of collaborative innovation and its consequences for management and organization. Furthermore, the ability to express and articulate and to act in accordance with the above has increased. The project has developed a collection of models, methods and tools for collaborative innovation that are available through https://www.johannebergsciencepark.com/projekt/kivi-colaborative-innovation
Planned approach and implementation
The project has been based on an action research perspective and a so-called "collaborative management research" approach in which the researchers were able to be closely involved in the two practical cases "Electricity" (development of electric mobility and transport) and "Positive Footprint Housing"(sustainable housing), respectively. The researchers have followed the work, interviewed actors and attended meetings. During a number of workshops, the project group has compiled data from the researchers, summarized problems and made interventions based on the hypotheses.
