How it works

As a subsidiary of Region Skåne, Innovation Skåne has a unique mission in improving the quality of life for people in Skåne and beyond – through the use of innovation. We have a history of developing and implementing new solutions to benefit residents, employees, and society in collaboration with Region Skåne, municipalities in Skåne, private companies, and academia. Our goal is to use innovation to address challenges and make a positive impact on the world.

Our expertise lies in the fields of health, food, and mobility, as well as an extensive experience in innovation and collaboration with public and private sector partners, academia, and other members of the innovation ecosystem.

We are innovation managers. Our main focus is using innovation to help the public sector overcome challenges. We are experienced in leading change and working with other organizations to achieve solutions. We believe that external collaboration and knowledge sharing is essential for success, and we strive to foster these relationships in all of our work.

In our work, we rely on our four core competences:

  • Innovation management: Our tool for leading innovation and development of welfare services of the future
  • Growth and business knowledge: Our team has extensive experience in both the public and private sector and is well-versed in the challenges and opportunities presented by factors such as regulations, organizational culture, and the market.
  • Test beds: We create test beds within the innovation areas we work in to test and adapt new solutions and methods based on – among others – technical, clinical, legal or organizational parameters.
  • Networking: We build and establish networks of all relevant stakeholders in a specific area, including startups, established businesses, public actors, academia, investors, and Skåne’s residents. Our extensive networks provide us with numerous opportunities for collaboration in larger projects and access to market intelligence research, allowing us to utilize what has already been developed and proven to be effective.
