Innovations in Public Services

Event :  Open Innovation in small firms: Positive step or costly mistake? Workshop

Date :  09/02/2012

This one day seminar, a joint event between the TSRC and the UK~IRC, explored the assumptions concerning the extent and meaning of innovation in public services. The challenges of encouraging innovation were examined and issues relating to overcoming barriers were discussed.

At a time of public sector funding cuts and a growing interest in new ways of delivering services, there is a need to examine the role of different types of providers  in the process of innovation. There is therefore a need to examine the role of the public sector organisations, third sector organisations, private sector organisations, and others that cross the boundaries such as mutual forms and spin outs.
