Title Matryoshka dolls and boundary infrastructuring : navigating among innovation policies and practices

English abstract
In several present discourses and practices that are involved in innovation and development projects it seems like there is a strong emphasis on management and planning with agreements and clear goals as the crucial components. In this paper we propose another approach that more acknowledge the complexity and messiness of innovation. We will discuss how we through Malmö Living Labs have navigated across an ecology of ongoing projects and innovation policies that we try to merge into something coherent and meaningful in multiple ways. The networks resemble the nested Russian Matryoshka dolls; unveiling one dimension you find another one. Inspired by the concepts of boundary objects and boundary infrastructuring we will argue that, by acknowledging these concepts as the strongest common frame during complex collaboration across disciplines and communities of practice, an informal, creative and flexible practice can get more space to flourish.
