Case studies archive

Since its start in 2014, OPSI has maintained a case study platform where innovations from around the world are collected and shared to help disseminate good ideas. OPSI has welcomed all public sector innovators, and their partners in industry and civil society, to submit cases to this platform.

In the first half of 2018, OPSI conducted an extensive user experience (UX) study of its existing platform and submission process, and used the findings to develop a new Case Study Platform that was launched in June 2018. The submission process has been significantly streamlined, and the new system is more user friendly and includes features requested by the innovation community, such as the ability to reach out and connect with those who submit innovations. Many of the cases from the prior platform has been updated and are now present on the new system. To ensure all of the previous cases are available, we have developed this archive page that provides high-level details about the cases, as well as full copies in PDF form.
