Purpose and goal

The purpose of the New Logics for Innovation project was to achieve new formal forms of collaboration between the research and education area Innovation and product realisation at MDH and Nyköping Municipality. The following will be formalised during 2020: * Internships for both students and staff (two-way exchange). * Student collaboration projects in courses identified as more appropriate. * Network-based module course of 4.5 credits for professionals in the innovation system.

Expected results and effects

The new established forms of collaboration between MDH and Nyköping municipality have the potential to lead to increased utilisation of knowledge, greater skills provision for organisations, larger labor market for students, and thus contribute to increased innovation capacity in the society. Especially if collaboration is spread throughout the region. The regional formation in 2019 and MDH´s transformation to a technical university in 2022 may enable further upshifting of the effects.

Planned approach and implementation

The ambitious project plan has been largely implemented in its entirety thanks shared knowledge about each other´s business, this via previously non-formalised collaboration activities. Implementation of the formal forms of collaboration takes place later than the original plan due to underestimation of the impact of external factors, such as the parliament- and municipal elections in 2018 and the formation of the Region Sörmland 2019.
