An Innovation Project for the Public Sector is intended to promote sustainable, systematic and effective innovation in public-sector services, infrastructure and administration. Innovation projects must be based on needs and challenges, must be part of the entity’s plans for development and must build on effective collaboration between the Project Owner (public sector body), R&D groups and other relevant stakeholders.

Innovations in this context are defined as new or significantly improved goods, services, processes, organisational and governance forms or models that are introduced to enhance value creation and for the benefit of society.

When developing your project we recommend using the Project Canvas tool (available in Norwegian only).
