This handbook is written for, and in a Norwegian local context. It is namely the case that in Norway welfare is in fact created mainly locally in the country’s 426 (current) municipalities. It is therefore more meaningful to talk about the welfare municipalities rather than the welfare state in Norway.

Good collaborative social innovation work is characterized by the fact that people with different resources, experience and knowledge work together. In this handbook, we present key concepts and a model for collaborative social innovation with relevant advice and recommendations on how the model, and the knowledge it is based on, can be used.

A sense of reality and the practical relevance of the work are ensured by the fact that five municipalities with six specific social innovation projects have been linked to the project. In addition, a case from Denmark has been used as a reference model.
