Co-creation corner

The SocKETs project contributes to exploring and experimenting with co-creation in the European Research and Innovation ecosystem. SocKETs created the conditions to explore productive collaborations between industrials and various societal actors, especially citizen organisations, to develop new values, concepts, solutions, products or services.

Many projects and initiatives already paved the way and produced noteworthy tools and resources to help stakeholders such as policy-makers, researchers, technology owners, business owners set up co-creation and societal engagement processes. Depending on the context, the co-creation can materialise at different stages of the innovation trajectory: sharing the production activities, adding values to the innovation development, co-developing priorities, expectations and concerns, etc. There are tools, methodology and recommendations for every situation.

Our co-creation corner provides resources and tools, created by us or by others, to support you in moving towards more inclusiveness in your Research and Innovation activities.
