This paper is a Preliminary Master Thesis Report for MSc in Business at BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo, majoring in strategy. The proposed master thesis will focus on strategy for innovation in the Norwegian healthcare sector, focusing on the new concept of Innovation Procurement Partnership. Innovation Procurement partnership is a concept for cooperation between private and public sector, created as a result of new EU directives regarding procurement processes. The healthcare sector is chosen because it is of particular interest for the authors and currently the only ongoing Innovation Procurement Partnership exists in the healthcare sector. The research will explore the concept of Innovation Procurement Partnership through the theoretical lense of institution based view. First, the topic of research will be introduced as well as research goals and a preliminary research question. This is followed by a presentation and discussion of core concepts relevant to the research. Litterature from institution based view will also be reviewed. In addition, the preliminary thesis includes a rudimentary research design and choice of methods. A qualitative, inductive study is suggested, where the design is based on two case studies. The data collection will occur through interviews and relevant secondary data. Lastly, a timeline for the research is presented.
