sker municipality has in the last decade been working actively with implementing new technologies in various fields of its public local management and delivery of services.  It is seeking to adopt national strategies and best practices within the field of e-government, but also to carefully choose certain areas of development in which we try to be front-runners. Many new applications of technology within education, healthcare and environmental services have been implemented, but as a municipality, it has seen the need for a more strategic approach to innovation and municipal development, and has in the last two years been developing a strategy for innovation. This work was recognized as one of three finalists in the Norwegian Innovation Awards of 2015, and the municipality is currently sharing its experiences with a broader audience in Norway, both from the public and private sectors.
