Learning from Innovation in Public Sector Environements

Objective

The LIPSE project (Learning from Innovation in Public Sector Environments) identifies drivers and barriers to successful social innovation in the public sector. Through studying social innovation and co-creation practices and processes in 11 European countries and 7 policy sectors, LIPSE will create and disseminate essential knowledge about public innovation. The LIPSE consortium consists of leading institutions in 11 European countries.

Seven empirical cross-national work packages will collect new insights on five building blocks of social innovation in the public sector:
1. Innovation environments
2. Innovation inputs
3. Innovation tools and processes
4. Innovation outcomes, diffusion and upscaling
5. Feedback loops in innovative systems

The project will firstly map institutional environments to study the role of social capital, innovation champions and leadership, using survey research and social network analysis.

The project will then look at citizens’ inputs into public innovation processes through participation, complaints and co-creation. This will be achieved by a) analysing secondary administrative datasets from ombudsmen and national audit offices b) case studies in social and welfare services and urban and rural regeneration and c) large scale survey research. It will then examine the use of risk management in innovation processes.

A work package on innovation diffusion and adoption will assess what factors contribute to the successful upscaling of ICT-driven social innovations, with a focus on teleworking (as a new way of working) and e-procurement.

Finally, the project will develop a comprehensive set of public sector social innovation indicators and explore future trends in social innovation through scenario-mapping with academic and practitioner experts. The dissemination of knowledge will be widespread, using websites, articles, books, road shows and conferences across Europe.
