The objective with the Public-Private Innovation Nordic Research Network is to explore and advance the research field of PPI and provide knowledge and guidelines on how PPI can create value for public and private parties. Knowledge is needed on how solutions are jointly developed, how challenges are overcome, and opportunities created to enhance our understanding of how solutions are applied and diffused to the public market and to leverage and scale the opportunities.
The Nordic countries takes a unique lead position in PPI as the countries have invested in various PPI-activities and created valued from these. Since throughout Europe there is increased emphasis on PPI as an essential driver for solving ‘Grand Challenges’ presented by United Nations sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), we have a unique position to enhance research novelty.
Joint network activities take place at three interrelated workshops. Purpose is to explore, enhance and elaborate across scattered PPI research conducted in Finland, Norway and Denmark and across various literature streams.
