Cities are under pressure to innovate their services and transform their management in the face of global challenges and societal
trends. Effective implementation of innovations requires that they respond to the needs of the city and reflect local specifics,
and at the same time that they are reflected in the processes and organizational structure. Social and organizational learning
play a role in adapting city administration and the urban ecosystem to new challenges. Theresea will focus on the potential
of pilot projects to support organizational and social learning and the ability to capture and mediate such learning. The
main part of the research is case studies in the Czech Republic and Poland based on a combination of qualitative and quantitative
research. The innovation ecosystem of two selected cities (Prague and Wroclaw) will be mapped, including its interaction with
organizations at the regional, national and European levels. The results of the research will be verified with representatives
of selected cities in other countries.
The project is lead by Wroclaw University of Science and Technology and is financially supported by the National Science
Centre Poland under the grant agreement UMO-2021/43/I/HS4/01647 and the Czech Science Foundation under grant agreement GF23-42273L.
The project was terminated on the basis of the decision of the provider (Ref. No. 46132/2023/GAČR/SVV).
