Brasil e Dinamarca celebram acordo de inovação em gestão pública

The Minister of Business
and Growth, Troels Lund Poulsen, has on March 14, 2016, signed a three-year
cooperation agreement on increased innovation and digitization of the public
sector in Brazil. The agreement aims to include help to pave the way for growth
of Danish companies in the South American country.

The Minister of Business and Growth, Troels Lund Poulsen, announced:

“It’s an interesting collaboration whereby Brazil will learn from the innovative and digital solutions and services that we have developed in Denmark. We have a lot to offer the Brazilians. It is also expected that the project will open doors for Danish companies in Brazil, with 200 million inhabitants and a great need for digital services."

The cooperation agreement was signed at a video conference. For the next three years, the Business and Growth Ministry will cooperate with the Brazilian Ministry of Finance, Planning and Public Administration.

One of the first initiatives of the newly signed cooperation is the creation of an innovations lab in Brazil’s capital, Brasilia. The creation of the Innovation Laboratory is inspired by the Danish MindLab, a development unit under the Business and Growth Ministry. During the three-year collaboration, employees from MindLab will work at the Innovation Laboratory in Brasilia and support specific projects to be developed for the public administration in Brazil for the benefit of all citizens in Brazil.

As part of the collaboration, a delegation from the Brazilian ministries - Ministry of study visited Denmark last week, where they were introduced to a number of Danish digital solutions, such as “NemID,” “Virk.dk,” and others.

Minister for Finance, Planning and Public Administration, Valdir Simão:

“This collaboration will help to create an environment for innovative solutions in the public sector. Brazil and Denmark have a common interest in making public services efficient and transparent and promoting a culture of innovation. We want to exchange experiences and knowledge to implement new strategies in the future, especially in e-government.”

It was agreed that the Business and Growth Minister, Troels Lund Poulsen, and the Brazilian Minister of Finance, Planning and Public Administration, Valdir Simão, will launch the Innovation Laboratory in Brasilia in August 2016.
