Innovation programme for SMB

In our innovation programme for SMEs, we have received clear feedback that one of the most useful modules was involved in innovation. Here we have analysed which players have the greatest value in including, it can be employees, customers, suppliers, boards or someone else entirely. Once the companies had chosen who they would prioritise, we developed clear structures for the work by defining clear goals and activities that could be implemented. Conclusion? It's amazing how much value you can get with even quite small grips.

Managing innovation at sustainable health

Several countries in Africa face major challenges in meeting sustainability goals and face complex challenges in the form of rapid demographic shifts, high levels of poverty, large refugee populations, climate change and institutional and state instability. Together with the Karolinska Institute (Sweden) and universities in Uganda, Somalia and the DRC, we have developed and delivered a digital competence raising programme for leaders from the health sector in drc, Somalia and Uganda. The aim of the programme is to increase the ability of participants, within their professional role, to work more strategically, innovatively, cross-sectorally and effectively to gain access to healthcare in vulnerable contexts. The programme is divided into in In three module where Tinkr has developed and implemented the one that deals with introduction to innovation and management for innovation. The program is part of the Virtual Center of Excellence for Sustainable Health (CESH) where Tinkr is a partner: https://cesh.health/

Stad Municipality

When Eid and Selje municipality merged and became Stad, innovation and co-creation should be a priority area for ensuring sustainable social development. Tinkr has contributed to several innovation projects within political organisation, meaningful and active life for young people as well as health and care. In early 2020, they wanted to take the next step. By establishing an interdisciplinary innovation team, they were able to combine the implementation of innovation projects with the development of innovation expertise in the organisation. Over the course of 9 months and about 9 collections, participants have worked on innovation projects that provided them with practical training in the innovation process with key methods and tools for effective innovation, while building a team and delivering tangible value through the projects.

We carry out comprehensive competence programmes

If you really want to build expertise on innovation in your organization, the combination of professional replenishment, collaboration and tasks that provide actual value is very good. Especially if you have some duration of the program

Innovation Norway

Innovation Norway wanted to increase the use of innovative procurements in the humanitarian sector. One of the challenges is that innovative procurements are both a little difficult to implement and quite time- and resource-intensive. With that as a starting point, we developed a guide for innovation-friendly acquisitions. Innovation-friendly procurement is a good starting point for organisations that want to get a greater focus on innovation in their procurements. By focusing a little more on a good demand analysis, conducting some market dialogue activities and having more open requirements specifications, one can gain a much greater innovation potential in ordinary acquisitions without requiring too much. The guide says a lot more about this, and just send us a message and we'll send it to you.

Troms and Finnmark County Council

Together with Troms and Finnmark County Council, we prepared an application for innovation partnerships for innovation Norway for the project "securing avalanches on the road". They came through the eye of the needle, and we have assisted in the work on demand analysis, structuring of the project and the development of a requirement specification. The majority of our work in the project has been related to the market dialogue where through the portal we have www.markedsdialog.no have secured thorough and common information to the market, been responsible for implementation and registration for dialogue conferences and one-on-one meetings, secured a large degree of media coverage, cooperation with a number of networks and clusters. In all the work, we have focused on meeting startups and entrepreneurs and suppliers who do not usually deliver in this area – and motivate them to submit a tender.

Rollag Municipality

The restructuring leader in Rollag municipality had a wild idea; can the health centre that the municipality wishes built in a few years become a health-promoting building – "a building that heals"?. Well, we said and connected on the project and tried to keep up with the municipality's great ambition level. After a preliminary study, the answer was "yes!". Through 2020 and into 2021, we will assist the municipality in finding the right level of innovation, balance risk against price and, not least, use the principles of innovation-friendly procurement; actively enter into dialogue with potential entrepreneurs, competence environments and other partners, and have them jump on the ball to enter as suppliers to the future health centre in Rollag. If the project comes to an end, you'll find out by 2023!
