SUS – an Award-Winning User Driven Innovation Agency for Social Good
We develop and facilitate new innovative social solutions by working closely together with citizens and professionals.
We design, test and scale new solutions to society’s biggest or most wicked problems. Our purpose is to improve the quality of life for people who find themselves in socially vulnable positions and to change society and its welfare institutions for the better. We believe that large-scale change is possible when involving both citizens, professionals, organisations and institutions in engaging in developing processes towards innovation and transformation.
Our approaches and strategies vary, but we always strive to create lasting changes for the affected groups by strengthening the quality and efficiency of the systems surrounding them.
We work across different disciplines and sectors, create results by combining knowledge, curiosity and the courage to experiment and cooperate with a broad network of organisations, municipalities, ministries and foundations.
