Gothenburg Journal 1
Short description
Check out how Gothenburg is implementing effective cross departmental working.

The third journal of the FED project has just been published! UIA expert Zeno Winkels focuses on the “institutional answer to the desire to have innovation ecosystems. The conclusion is that an advanced science park contributes to an advanced innovation ecosystem and can be well equipped for some leadership roles that are often taken by municipalities as is the case in most UIA projects. By using the consensus model in its board and by taking the lead in a unified mission (the FED project) Johanneberg Science Park and the municipality of Gothenburg avoid silo-thinking between departments and partner-organizations.”
