Scaling up Co-Creation

Co-Creation is the practice of bringing together diverse actors in a joint innovation activity to mutual benefits and has emerged as a widely desired key resource in current attempts to enhance innovation.Co-Creation answers to recent calls for greater responsiveness and responsibility in innovation practice, and broader trends to organize innovation more openly, democratically, and with a view towards concret e local needs and contexts.

SCALINGS explores the avenues and limits for the wider use of co-creation across Europe by working in a European-wide multi-disciplinary consortium.

SCALINGS aims to strengthen opportunities for “best practice” transfer and a socially robust upscaling of co-creation, while improving our understanding of how co-creation practices relate to the social, cultural, economic, and institutional environments in which they are implemented.

Project Aims

SCALINGS aims to strengthen opportunities for “best practice” transfer and a socially robust upscaling of co-creation in Europe. Therefore, SCALINGS will improve the understanding of how co-creation practices relate to social. Cultural, economic and institution environments in which they are embedded.

About

Research Approach

SCALINGS follows a comparative, embedded, and experimental research approach that studies three co-creation instrument: innovation procurement, living labs and co-creation facilities in two technical domains (urban energy and robotics). In the first ever rigorous comparative study, SCALINGS will investigate the implementation, uptake and outcomes of the three co-creations instruments in two technical domains across 10 countries.
