Supporting the National Public Innovation Lab of Costa Rica
The San José Hub collaborated in the first stage of the design process of the Public Innovation Lab of Costa Rica. Different Shapers have been involved in the process of running the Lab since 2018 and, in March 2019, the Hub in collaboration with the Government of Costa Rica, organized an event called NODO in which more than 50 actors from NGOs, public sector, universities, private sectors, and international entities used design thinking methodology to co-create the concept and value propositions of the Lab. Currently, the Hub is working on designing the 2nd stage of collaboration with the National Public Innovation Lab. Three different public innovation processes are being implemented and a group of public innovators from 8 public institutions are working on them. This will have a huge impact in the future design of policies in the country.
