What Is SCALINGS?

SCALINGS is an interdisciplinary European research project that explores the avenues and limits for the wider use of co-creation and open innovation practices across Europe.

SCALINGS is funded by the European Union’s Horizon2020 programme in the section Science with and for Society SCALINGS aims to investigate and shape the implementation of co-creation practices in the technological domains Robotics, Urban Energy, Autonomous Driving.

Co-creation – the practice of bringing together diverse actors in a joint innovation activity to mutual benefits – has emerged as a widely desired key resource in current attempts to enhance innovation processes and outcomes.

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 concrete local needs and contexts.

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.

Co-Creation
is the practice of bringing together diverse actors in a joint activity to mutual benefit.
In other words: Working together to find better solutions.

Co-creation
is important to countless fields to improve our everyday live and find solutions for societal challenges.

When
is co-creation succesfuland new ideas can be created?

When
do new and innovative solutions come to life?

SCALINGS
aims to find the answers on this question!

Context Matters for Innovation

Why do solutions work out sometimes and sometimes they do not?

SCALINGS follows the hypothesis, that innovation is affected by context:

In which countries do solutions work out? In which fields of action do solutions work out?

SCALINGS follows a comparative research design that looks at social, cultural and institutional differences between co-creation regions.

And SCALINGS explores how context influences cross-country adaption.
