In recent years, we have been running a project about how one can increase the development rate of new products, services and working relationships through open innovation, cross-boundary collaboration and digital collaboration. The most important thing we learned is about how much there is to win by opening up and sharing experiences. So now we’re doing that.

Future public meals

More than 3 million public meals are daily served in Sweden! In 2013 the Swedish public sector’s procurement of food amounted to 9.6 billion SEK, and this accounts for approximately 4% of the total Swedish food consumption. How will the public meals be like in the future?

Future retail

Increasing e-commerce, urbanisation and consumer power are only a few of the many challenges that the retail sector and all related actors are facing within the next couple of years. However, with challenges come possibilities and those actors that accept the challenges have the possibility of becoming very successful.

How do you become more innovative and what can you do to increase the rate of innovation in the organization you work for or the industry you are a part of?
