A cuppa with...Lene Krogh Jeppesen and Niels Jakobsen, Center for Offentlig Innovation Denmark

16 September

We invite you to join us for a (virtual) cuppa, the chance to hear how a public service organisation is innovating during the pandemic.

A cuppa with Y Lab is part panel, part Q&A, part randomised coffee trial.

We want to give a platform to the stories of innovation that have emerged in public services during lockdown. We also want to give people the chance to meet and network.


The Event

We'll be chatting to Lene Krogh Jeppesen and Niels Jakobsen, Consultants at Denmark's Center for Offentlig Innovation (COI). COI devleoped the first Innovation Barometer and are in the process of producing a manual to help other countries to measure innovation in the public sector.

Lene is responsible for the work on evaluating innovative initiatives and for COI's innovation awards, and she maintains co-operation with Nordic national actors on public sector innovation.

Niels is involved in initiatives on spreading innovation and capacity building through collaborative projects with COI's partners.
