What?

Innovation.helsingborg.se is the platform that is the hub of the city's innovation initiative. Here, the city presents its city-wide challenges and its entire innovation portfolio. Through this transparency, collaboration with moath workers, inhabitants, association life, business life and academia, which then can help with ideas to solve the city's challenges and create one smarter, more sustainable and caring world.

The platform also has a toolbox with guides and methods that allow anyone to get started with innovation work on their own. We also talk about the technical platforms that the city has developed and continues to develop. Many of the platforms are based on open source code, so that others can use the same code. 

Why?

Continuous innovation work requires low prestige and transparency. The City of Helsingborg's investment in innovation is based that we must cooperate with our surroundings in order to be able to solve the challenges such as we face as a cityWe need create conditions for increase synergies both internally and externally.  

How?

We test that on this platform make visible our challenges for the outside world in order to ask for help in resolving them. We also try to be completely transparent with all initiatives that are run within the framework of the innovation venture including failed ventures and the lessons learned. This in order to get as much collaboration and synergies as possible, both internally and externally. The platform is constantly evolving and new features are added continuously to create as much value as possible.
