Which are the 4 aspects of innovation?

Every public organization aims to serve the citizen directly or indirectly and in the context of its operation, it changes and innovates, whether consciously or not.

These changes and innovations have different views, goals, and aspects and require different approaches. It is important for public organizations to think each time about why they are innovating and whether they are using the necessary approaches to achieve their goals.

OPSI OECD Call for Innovation Focusing on Cross-Border Cooperation 0 (0)

The OECD Observatory of Public Sector Innovation (OPSI) and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Center for Government Innovation in the United Arab Emirates call to submit innovation for 2021.

This year, the innovations that will be presented should be specifically focused on cross-border cooperation. Such innovations involve action between administrations at the national, regional, or local level and highlight the importance of working together in new and exciting ways to address common challenges. Such innovations at the time of the pandemic could involve the joint design of new services or actions between states to manage the challenges of COVID-19.

This call encourages innovative actors around the world to come up with innovative practices to fuel international research on better public policy management, but also to inspire others to work in new and creative ways. Innovation can be submitted by Public Administration Bodies, civil society organizations, academic institutions, but also organizations from the private sector. However, in order to be taken into account, initiatives should focus on improving public governance and the public sector should be fully involved in the project.

As in previous years, many of these innovations will be presented by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development in
