If different institutes want to collaborate in finding new solutions for societal challenges the approach of co-creation turned out to be a very effective one. The European Horizon 2020 project ACCOMPLISSH works at finding innovative methods of collaboration and co-creation in the so-called quadruple helix setting, an ecosystem consisting of universities, governments, industry and societal organisations. This 2-day working conference gets into bringing co-creation into practice. This is not a talk-shop, the conference is highly interactive. Masterclasses, workshops, dialogue sessions and live co-creation sessions are part of the programme.
In order to make co-creation a success, active and symmetrical communication is highly important. Important first steps is to facilitate active communication and active listening. By using reflection methods and working with clear expression of expectations at the start of co-creation sessions, the more effective the outcomes will be. This deeper layer of communication is key to effective co-creation. Communicating to a wider public will be one of the highlights of the work session.
This 2-day work session will feed you with many new ideas how to co-create, with many new contacts all over Europe and gives you the opportunity to really learn how to co-create in an effective way in the ecosystem setting you as a professional or your organisation is part of.
One behalf of Tallinn University School of Governance, Law and Society, conference is hosted by Zsolt Bugarszki, lecturer of social policy.
Conference is free of charge.
