Annika Agger, Karsten Hansen, Eva Sørensen og Jacob Torfing: The GREENGOV project
The GREENGOV project (Governing the green shift in Oslo, Gothenburg and Copenhagen through leadership of co-creation) is financed by the Research Council in Norway (fall 2017-2021). The purpose of the GREENGOV is to study leadership strategies and mechanisms that can effectively support co-creation, learning and innovation in favour of the green shift. With this term, we look at transformations toward sustainable, low carbon cities –acknowledging that this encompasses also resilient and energy smart or low energy/energy efficient society.
Andreas Hagedorn Krogh: Voluntary organizations in local emergency management (VOLEM) – from january 2020
Handling emergencies in the events of natural disasters, accidents or deliberate incidents such as terrorism or social unrest often requires resources beyond those available to public authorities. The VOLEM project examines how collaboration between voluntary organizations and public authorities affects local communities’ capacity to respond to emergency situations. Through a comparative and methodologically diversified approach, the project investigates how and under what conditions institutional and individual factors affect the collaborative process and the resulting emergency response capacity.
Eva Sørensen, Jacob Torfing, Tina Øllgaard Bentzen: POLECO
POLECO - A research project on political leadership and institutional reform in Norwegian and Danish municipalities funded by the Norwegian research council.
The conditions under which elected politicians perform political leadership is changing, and in response to these changes, governments all over the Western world seek to reform the democratic institutions. This activity is particularly intense at local levels of governance. The POLECO project studies how small and large democratic reforms affect the role perceptions and political leadership capacity of municipal politicians in Norwegian and Danish municipalities.
Magnus Paulsen Hansen, Peter Triantafillou, Lene Brogaard, Ole Helby Petersen, Eva Sørensen and Jacob Torfing: TROPICO
The TROPICO project (Transforming into Open, Innovative and Collaborative Governments) aims to comparatively examine how public administrations are transformed to enhance collaboration in policy design and service delivery, advancing the participation of public, private and societal actors. It will analyse collaboration in and by governments, with a special emphasis on the use of information and communication technologies (ICT), and its consequences.
Magnus Paulsen Hansen: Hecat
The Horizon 2020 project Hecat aims to investigate, demonstrate and pilot a disruptive technology to support labour market decision making by unemployed citizens and those seeking to help them. The ambition of the project is to improve citizen’s experience and outcomes of unemployment by offering real-time evidence-based insight into their personal position in the labour market. Hecat builds on the experience and learning of existing basic algorithmic techniques used by some European PES administrations to deliver labour market insight directly to unemployed citizen while broaden out the focus on quantity of jobs drawn from the ‘economic imagination’ to add a focus on job quality and sustainable employment. The aim is bring these insights into into the hands of decision makers with a platform-UX that exploits novel artificial intelligence with learning capabilities and cutting edge, accessible visualisation and gamification techniques to support knowledge discovery and decision making at the critical moment, as a decision support system.
Kim Sass Mikkelsen, Jan-Hinrik Meyer-Sahling and Christian Schuster: "Civil service reform and anti-corruption: Does ethics training reduce corruption in the civil service?"
The project gathers researchers from universities in the United Kingdom (UCL, Nottingham), Nepal (Tribhuvan Kathmandu), and Bangladesh (Dhaka). It designs and implements state-of-the-art ethics training courses with civil servants in Nepal and Bangladesh and evaluates their effects on corruption and (un)ethical behaviour in a field experiment. The research will provide insights for those who seek innovative tools to reduce corruption in the public sector and promote ethical behaviour among civil servants. The project is funded by Department for International Development (DFID) and Global Integrity.
Eva Sørensen, Karsten Hansen, Peter Aagaard and Jacob Torfing: COGOV - An EU financed research project on public sector transformation
The public sector is in the process of transforming itself from a bureaucratic authority, via an efficient service provider, to an arena for co-creation. The COGOV project studies how strategic management and institutional design may enable local governments and public agencies to exploit the drivers and overcome the barriers to the co-production or co-creation of innovative public value outcomes. The Roskilde team is responsible for conducting a series of design experiments aiming to enhance co-creation, but also participates in the other parts of the project.
