2nd EMiN Meeting: Making Missions Work- How to involve regions in the mission implementation process?
After a successful kick-off of the EMiN in October we arranged the second EMiN-meeting on 7 December. The event was held as a two-hour webinar and the focus was on the involvement of the regions in the mission implementation process. We invited stakeholders from Swedish and Danish regions to give us a closer look on regional examples and approaches towards the implementation of missions.
Daniel Sköld from the Swedish region of Blekinge gave us a presentation about how they designed a pilot on what a mission-oriented way of working means, including how they are using missions as a framework and as a method. Furthermore, Birgitte Karnøe Frederiksen was talking about how the Central Denmark Region are directing the LIFE-funded project Coast 2 Coast into a mission context, and Harald Hasler Sheetal from the Region of Southern Denmark presented the cross-sectorial approach of the Odense Fjord Cooperation. They all pointed out how different missions are relevant for their projects, and that a holistic and dynamic approach is crucial.
Finally, Pirita Lindholm from Errin gave us a presentation about Errin and how they are involved in the missions, and Lisa Almsjö from Vinnova presented the main takeaways from the Mutual Learning Exercise that took place on 18 October.
It is safe to say that European regions are already active in the mission implementation, some as an integrated part of the EU missions while other projects through their shared scope and aim with the missions. However, a common challenge that has been identified is how to engage the stakeholders and how to avoid "mission fatigue". Some of the key success factors that were discussed were:
- Clear governmental structures
- Tailormade communication (What's in it for me?)
- Lean implementation processes
- Exchange of ideas, experiences, learnings
- Dynamic thinking
