On February 23, 2021, at an online event organized by the Danish National Innovation Center, the Public Sector Innovation Manual was presented, which is the first attempt to publish an international guide that can be used in innovation level measurement procedures, oriented to the needs of the public sector.
The Manual is the culmination of successful collaboration, which was completed in January 2021 amid a pandemic crisis involving more than 60 representatives of national innovation administrations, with the support of innovation analysts and consultants from international organizations, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development as well as academics from more than 20 countries.
On behalf of Greece, in the planning process, which began in December 2019, the Ministry of Interior participated, with representatives of the Department of Innovation and Best Practices.
Familiarize with the manual
The Manual contains sections that can help a public organization, or even more broadly a public administration, to know how to conduct audits and assess the ability to innovate. In particular, the Manual helps a research team to:
⇒ Set strategic goals when conducting innovation research
⇒ Communicate the manual
⇒ Identify innovation
⇒ Find recipients
⇒ Adapt the Manual to the needs
