Transformative public sector and civil society

We want to enable civil society and the public sector to conduct innovation work and strengthen the ability to mobilize for long-term and sustainable processes that are based on governance, working methods and culture, follow-up and regulations.

Ett Sverige, where public and civil society organizations have world-class innovative power that is fully used to effectively lead in a sustainable society, is this area's objective.

In order to drive the societal change required to achieve sustainable development, the public sector is an important and often fundamental player.

In addition, civil society is an innovative force to be reckoned with and has a long tradition of developing innovative solutions. Much that we take for granted today in welfare such as public dental care, elderly care and child care centers has from the beginning been created by people who have organized themselves around a common idea of improving society. How can we better utilize the capacity of civil society to contribute to innovations for social development?

We direct initiatives that provide leaders and employees with organizational conditions, knowledge and the ability to contribute to innovation and the conditions for innovations to be able to develop. In several of our offers, we target project groups where public actors and civil society are important partners.

So we want to contribute to a transformative public activities and civil society

Vinnova works with several initiatives that concern how publicly funded activities and civil society can meet societal challenges and drive development towards a sustainable future. Below you see examples of our efforts.
