The INNlocal project operates as part of the STARS EU alliance. The project's primary goal is to promote multidisciplinary cooperation among various stakeholders, including academia, researchers, local public administration, private organizations, non-profits, and civil society. Their collective focus is to address societal challenges such as environmental sustainability, diversity, inclusion, and citizenship through innovative solutions. This collaboration aims to impact local, regional, national, and global levels by enhancing the delivery of local public services and advancing education and research.
Specific goals include identifying innovation skills needs, co-designing training programs, conducting pilot implementations, and sharing results with stakeholders. The project will provide benchmarks, profiles, databases, roadmaps, and guidelines for fostering innovation in local public administration, focusing on sustainability, diversity, inclusion, and citizenship. It will also offer learning opportunities, microcredentials, and interactive tools to promote innovative local public services.
