COI contributes to the public sector becoming more efficient and delivering services and products of a higher quality through innovation.
The National Centre for Public Sector Innovation (COI) is owned by and works across the Danish public sector. COI has a down to earth approach to fulfilling our purpose and delivering on our activities by:
- developing and communicating knowledge and tools, that can be used at the individual workplace/public sector institution and by decision makers and researchers/scientists.
- having a nationwide presence and participating in meetings, workshops and conferences.
- establishing partnerships and networks with public sector workplaces, private sector companies, citizens, volunteers, scientists
- establishing and participating in the debate on the framework for public sector innovation.
