Purpose and goal
The aim of the project was to strengthen the potential of VLL Innovation to work with innovation processes in partnership. The overall goal was to validate and perform a quality control of the developed innovation process and value model, translated into practical, effective and value creating approaches for country councils in Sweden. VLL Innovation/VLL today has a well established partnership process for innovation initiatives with the private sector and a final draft of a value model which is assumed to be finalized and applied in partnership agreements during Q1, 2018.
Expected results and effects
The project has resulted in a validated partnership process for value creating innovation, developed through continous evaluation and adjustments in live cases. The value model and its principles for measuring and sharing value has been developed and its application is scheduled for Q1 2018. The outcome is replicable models for other actors within the health sector that wish to apply similar approaches of value creating innovation with the private sector. The partnership process and the value model further contributes to new business models beyond traditional buyer/seller models.
Planned approach and implementation

The iteration process has contibuted to the results and outcomes of the project while also serving as a factor for delay of deliverables as the processes of buy-in to a common understanding and vision is complext and time consuming. The guiding principles has nonetheless been that co-creating partnerships are key for the future of the Swedish health sector and its current challenges.
