This paper describes the partnership process and the preliminary results of a untraditional joint innovation project between municipalities, public utility companies, and regional authorities in the Capital Region of Denmark. The ongoing project named KLIKOVAND, which is organised as a cross municipal partnership, aims at finding innovative climate adaptation solutions in response to increasing and more intense rain events in Denmark. The new approach was presented at the InKT12 Conference in Bournemouth in April 2012: Next Practise in University Research Based Open Innovation - from push to pull: case studies from Denmark. Based on a comprehensive partnership approach the project addresses legal issues, internal as well as external communication, decision support systems, and training and competence development. It has just started its third and final implementation year. Based on the promising results of the ongoing project preparations for its continuation is presently underway. The preliminary results, which concern partnership, cooperation and technical results are presented here.

Key Words: Climate Change Adaptation, Storm Water, Partnership Processes, Team Innovation, Loosely Coupled Network.
