Scaling up Co-creation: Avenues and Limits for Integrating Society in Science and Innovation

Descrizione del progetto

Promuovere l’innovazione su larga scala

Nel panorama dinamico delle iniziative collaborative, è più che mai importante comprendere le complessità dei processi e dei risultati della co-creazione in contesti culturali, sociali e normativi diversi. È necessario approfondire i domini della robotica e dell’energia urbana. Proprio questo è l’obiettivo del progetto SCALINGS, finanziato dall’UE. Analizzando l’implementazione, l’adozione e i risultati degli strumenti di co-creazione nei settori della robotica e dell’energia urbana in 10 paesi, SCALINGS cerca di identificare pratiche scalabili e trasferibili. Grazie a dati unici, a quadri di riferimento trasformativi e a una tabella di marcia politica completa dell’UE, SCALINGS apre la strada a una diffusione capillare della co-creazione, promuovendo l’innovazione e la collaborazione interculturale. Il progetto collaborerà con oltre due dozzine di iniziative europee di co-creazione.

Obiettivo

Co-creation practice – and co-creation research – are at a crossroads: More than ever, initiatives to boost innovation through collaboration among diverse actors are flourishing across Europe. Yet, this mainstreaming poses new challenges to better understand “co-creation processes and outcomes under various cultural, societal and regulatory backgrounds to allow better-targeted policy support” (SwafS-13-17). To date, no systematic studies exist that detail how co-creation instruments operate under different socio-cultural conditions, i.e. if “best practices” will be effective elsewhere or if the resulting products and services are compatible with new markets.
SCALINGS addresses the challenge of mainstreaming co-creation across a diverse Europe head-on: In the first ever rigorous comparative study, we will investigate the implementation, uptake, and outcomes of three co-creation instruments (public procurement of innovation, co-creation facilities, and living labs) in two technical domains (robotics and urban energy) across 10 countries. Using comparative case studies and coordinated cross-country experiments, we explore if and how these instruments can be generalized, transferred, or scaled up to new socio-cultural, economic, or institutional conditions to unleash their innovative power.
Based on this unique data set, we will develop two new transformative frameworks – “situated co-creation” and “socially robust scaling” – to guide the wider dissemination of co-creation. We will synthesize our findings into an “EU Policy Roadmap” to support ongoing EU innovation policy efforts. Empirically, SCALINGS is closely integrated with over two dozen European co-creation initiatives that deal with cross-cultural transferability on a daily basis. Together with these partners, we will co-create enhanced practices that feed directly back into their work and strategy. Finally, we will launch a training program (boot camp) on co-creation in diverse settings for other EU consortia.
