Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


The study’s main contribution consists of the systematic review of the concept and application of public service innovation networks for social innovation (PSINSIs) in the particular Danish context. It is based on a systematic search of documents from Google and key web sites of Danish governmental and research organizations.The paper highlightsthat the concept takes several forms and names in the Danishliterature, thus contributing to theory. The results show that the literature on PSINSIs can be grouped according to 4 themes: 1) ‘Samskabelse’ (co-creation), 2) collaboration with the civil society, 3) social entrepreneurs and social innovation, 4) public-private innovation partnerships. The reviewpresents and discusses a number of Danish-based PSINSIs projects, which are the base for interesting learning lessons, thus contributing also to practice.
