Currently I participate in a Danish study on collaborative innovation in the public sector. During my visit to Stanford University I am investigating how innovation is shaped in collaboration between different actors who participate in a partnership. I am studying how partnerships can be used as a frame for collaborative innovation and whether or not this collaboration leads to co-creation of new ideas and innovations. As an empirical case I study how partnerships between public libraries and actors from the civil society and the private sector can be used as a tool for co-creation and innovation.
