Projects

Since its inception, GNova has developed more than 20 projects, supporting the development of solutions in partnership with several partner institutions. Furthermore, the Laboratory is improving its operating structure and developing actions to expand competencies and capacities for innovation within the government, supporting the red tape reduction strategy of the Federal Government, in line with the institutional mission of Enap.

Check out the GNova’s projects already finished or in progress below, as well as the innovation promotion activities developed in character.

Innovation Scholarships - Cátedras Program

GNova participates in the Cátedras Program, an initiative of Enap's Stricto Sensu Research and Graduate Department, with the aim at fostering the development of innovative projects for problem solving in the management and implementation of public policies.

In the “innovation” modality, the focus on the incentive consists of public service solution prototype development projects provided by the federal, regional or local Executive Branch whose final delivery must be a prototype of innovation that consists of a viable product.

In the search modality, the product is a research report. The selection of research projects and prototype development projects takes place through public notices, with several selection steps, with project evaluation committee and conducting interviews.

Support to National Council for Red Tape Reduction - Brasil Eficiente

By designation of the Civil House of the Presidency of the Republic, GNova became the technical-administrative support lab for the activities of the National Council for Red Tape Reduction - Brasil Eficiente. The program is coordinated by the Civil House and composed of other Ministries and representatives of the National Congress and Civil society.

The Council represents an important move to broaden the governance - and effects - of initiatives for modernization and administrative simplification, red tape reduction, digitalization and reduction of the regulatory burden imposed on society and the productive sector. GNova's activities in support of the Council include:

  • Prospecting and screening of red tape reduction initiatives with the Permanent Red Tape Reduction Committees of Ministries;

  • Identification of trends, methodologies and technologies useful for Ministry initiatives;

  • Interlocution with actors from academia, the third sector and the productive sector, looking for partnerships to accelerate initiatives;

In addition to the prospecting activities mentioned above, GNova's support for Efficient Brazil includes:

  • Offering courses and training in new methodologies and project acceleration strategies to those responsible for bureaucracy projects;

  • Incubation, mentoring and prioritization of projects related to red tape reduction in the laboratory activities.

Mentoring to innovation units

A public innovation environment involves the creation, participation and animation of networks based on trust and free exchange of good practices, learned lessons from mistakes, content, references and ideas. The Danish Government Innovation Lab, MindLab, mentors GNova and shares its methods, experience and knowledge. GNova, in turn, conducts mentoring sessions in innovation units for the implementation phase, using a collaborative and creative approach. Since its inception, GNova has supported or contributed to the structuring of innovation units in institutions such as MEC and ANVISA.
