Funding from Vinnova SEK 290 000
Project duration December 2017 - November 2018
Status Completed

Important results from the project

The objective of the Innovation Platform Borås is to study if we can work more preventive and reduce costs due to lack of collaboration and preventive actions. The ambition of the project was to develop two different funding models, in two different areas, to enable preventive initiatives to be taken within the municipality.

Expected long term effects

Financial models for preventing actions have been developed and an application - 2018-04493 Sustainable Impact Governance for URban Development (SIGURD) - has been submitted and granted by Vinnova. Borås City has initiated work to develop and test the proposed new model within the school and education area in of their districts. We are awaiting effects from the work of these pilots in 2019-2021.

Approach and implementation

The mission is innovative and is challenging current ways of financing municipal activities. In the first phase of the project we planned and defined the assignment. A conclusion after reading, interviewing and conducting workshops with identified stakeholders is that there is a lack of funding models open for preventive actions in collaboration with others. Most of the financing is made through traditional silos. A new financing model has been developed and we have gained a clearer picture of future work. The proposed models will be tested 2019-2021 in the SIGURD project.
