MindLab is a cross-ministerial innovation unit which involves citizens and businesses in creating new solutions for society. We are also a physical space – a neutral zone for inspiring creativity, innovation and collaboration.
We work with the civil servants in our three parent ministries: the Ministry of Business and Growth, the Ministry of Children and Education and the Ministry of Employment and we form a collaboration with the Ministry for Economic Affairs and the Interior. The parent ministries cover broad policy areas that affect the daily lives of virtually all Danes. Entrepreneurship, digital self-service, education and employment are some of the areas they address.
MindLab is instrumental in helping the ministry’s key decision-makers and employees view their efforts from the outside-in, to see them from a citizen’s perspective. We use this approach as a platform for co-creating better ideas.
