Purpose and goal
The goal of the project was to perform a norm critical analysis f the work being done in the Vinnväxt cluster Smart Housing Småland. We also wanted to look at creating a plan to introduce a norm creative approach to innovation throughout the Vinnväxt clusters. The Project looked at needs and acceptance of normcritical innovation methods and tools. It also looked at how these tools and methods aligned with the Vinnväxt applies processes and ways of working.
Expected results and effects
The project resulted in increased knowledge and experience of norm creative methods and norm critical frame works in Smart Housing Småland. Another result was how this knowledge can be put to use in new projects, new project constellations and in current and new processes within the Smart Housing cluster environment. The project result will also come in use in projects related to inclusive innovation practices in Vinnväxt, e.g. in 2019-00801.
Planned approach and implementation
During the project three workshops were performed to create a base for researching and investigating the current situation. During these workshops the needs, expectations and hopes concerning norm critical analysis and norm creative practises of the participants were identified. The workshops looked closer at theory and practises included in the meta design framework “From me to we and back again” and in the norm creative toolbox provided in NOVA (VR 2016:03).
