Learning from Innovation in Scottish Public Services

Project Details


The proposed project will follow up on the results of the European Union funded project “Learning from Innovation in Public Sector Environments” (LIPSE) WP2 and WP4, which were conducted by Sophie Flemig, Stephen Osborne and Tony Kinder in 2013-2015. The research in WP2 entailed two case studies on co-production in public services (i.e. the involvement of service users in the provision of services). WP4 consists of a 200-response survey and four case studies regarding the effects of risk on innovation (two case studies on mental health and two on environmental sustainability).

LIPSE’s main goal is to identify barriers to and drivers of innovation and the UEBS involvement resulted in four reports for the EU (Work Packages 1, 2, 3, and 4) in 2014/15, 4 conference papers, as well as 3 planned publications in 2015/16 (one currently under review).

Several research partners, such as the RSPB, East Dunbartonshire Council, and the Samaritans, have approached us request our assistance in translating our research findings into direct improvements of their public service provisions, together with their staff and management. The proposed impact events address this need and will be organised and guided by Sophie Flemig and Stephen Osborne in 2015 and 2016.
