The governance of collaborative public sector innovation to produce public value: A comparative study

Project Details


This project corresponds with Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine Research Priorities (2022-26) (Priority 1. Public policy development and its implementation in education, science, innovation and technology).Tackling inequality and poverty is a priority for developing countries and is crucial for ensuring economic and social stability. The need to solve these complex problems requires the introduction of innovation in the public sector of Ukraine. Public sector innovation (PSI) necessitates collaboration between the state, the private sector and civil society institutions as well as the transfer of good practices nationally and internationally. The project will study the landscape of successful collaborative innovation in government and public services in Ukraine and Eastern Europe & Baltic Region from a comparative perspective. The aim is to understand the content, collaborative management, process dynamics and public value outcomes of collaborative innovation adoption in public services before the war period in Ukraine and compare it with the innovations from Eastern European and Baltic regions (Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania). This research will enable researchers, policy makers, and practitioners to develop the skills and capacity to effectively manage collaborative innovation within government to solve difficult policy problems as well as to identify potential innovation transfer from Eastern Europe and Baltic regions.
