Debate: Whether and how public innovations create value

Hartley, Jean; Fuglsang, Lars; Rønning, Rolf and Geuijen, Karin (2024). Debate: Whether and how public innovations create value. Public Money & Management (Early Access).



Public innovation has come of age. It is now a distinctive field in its own right, and no longer overly reliant on evidence, concepts and norms derived from private sector research (for example Arundel et al., 2019; Windrum & Koch, 2008; Hartley, 2005; Bekkers & Tummers, 2018). A key feature of public innovation is its publicness—it occurs in, and is linked to, a formal political context rather than being driven by market pressures.
