Caroline Wigren has recently published two insight reports, The innovative city - innovation in the public sector and The innovative city - to work for innovation through business.
Tell us about your recent insight reports, what are they about? And who should read them?
I have the great opportunity to act as an embedded researcher in the municipality of Helsingborg, financed by the Flexit Programme at Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. I have been in Helsingborg since October 2018 and I am there for two years. During my time in the municipality, I focus on understanding and developing knowledge on public innovation. What is public innovation, and how is the municipality of Helsingborg organizing for working with public innovation – are questions I focus on.
To communicate my insights to the organization and others I am writing shorter reports. It is a way for me to engage in a dialogue with the organization and communicate what I learn. I see it as a good complement to the academic texts I also write.
