The ICE project investigates how employees’ understandings of users’ needs in public and private service organizations create innovations. The focus is on situations where the user in the role of a customer interacts with an employee either face-to-face or via ICT-networks. The project studies such encounter processes and how they lead to innovations and how these innovations are developed within the firm.
