CCIC aims to improve regional policies by enhancing innovation in the public sector and increasing collaboration between local and regional authorities, public entities and other stakeholders.
CCIC focuses on improving regional policies by enhancing innovation in the public sector and increasing collaboration between local and regional authorities, public entities and other stakeholders. CCIC considers four thematic areas with respect to identifying and surveying public sector innovations, and also a fifth, which is horizontal in nature. These thematic areas will be translated into policy recommendations at the end of the project:
1. Innovative financial instruments
2. Public procurement and innovation
3. Publicly owned enterprises and innovation
4. Civil society inclusion in public innovation
5. Local/regional blind-spots (horizontal topic).
This fourth edition of the CCIC newsletter is focused on the third Thematic Group (TG) on Publicly Owned Enterprises (POEs) and Innovation. In this newsletter we will explain what is meant by ‘POEs and Innovation’, which questions of interest have been discussed among the CCIC partners concerning this theme, and in order to give you some practical examples of how POEs are implemented in the CCIC cities and regions, a showcase of some good practices will be presented.
