Ongoung evaluator - support for innovators
|Coordinator||Linköpings universitet - Department of Management and Engineering|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 800 000|
|Project duration||December 2017 - March 2019|
Purpose and goal
Our ongoing research has aimed to facilitate Vinnova´s further development and improvement of the support for innovators and idea owners. Through our work, we have contributed to increased learning both for the intermediaries and for the program management.
Expected results and effects
Through our work we have added new perspectives and helped the project managers to reflect on their processes. The ongoing evaluation has focused both on how validation of ideas in the early phase can be done in an appropriate manner and on how collaboration between the organizations and individuals involved can be stimulated and strengthened. In our discussions with Vinnova, we have been able to contribute with new insights and perspectives through sharing our knowledge and experience.
Planned approach and implementation
- Study visits and interviews with the intermediaries and use of their progress reports. - Dialogues with Vinnova´s representatives. - Survey directed to the innovators / idea owners who applied for and / or participated in the program.
