The carefully chosen acronym ACCOMPLISSH stands for: Accelerate co-creation by setting up a multi-actor platform for impact from Social Sciences and Humanities. It covers the project in a single word: we will accomplish the challenge of creating an innovative valorisation concept that will strengthen the position and impact generation of SSH research and contribute to innovation for a variety of lead-users and end-users.
Traditional valorisation approaches focus on linear processes: from academia to society. In order to bring valorisation to a higher level, all relevant actors need to cooperate in an equal setting: co-creation. Co-creation transcends boundaries, but it does not happen naturally. Therefore, the ACCOMPLISSH consortium, consisting of 14 universities from 12 countries, will actively involve the other partners from the so called Quadruple Helix (industry, governments and societal partners) within the project. The project has chosen an Open Innovation approach.
The ACCOMPLISSH project will set up a dialogue platform with representatives from academia, industry, governments and societal partners. The ACCOMPLISSH dialogue platform is organised in such a way that academia, industry, governments and societal partners equally contribute in identifying barriers and enablers of co-creation. The results from both practice and the theory of co-creation form the basis of the valorisation concept and will be tested in the project in a quadruple helix setting. This concept will be tested and developed in such a way that it is transferable, scalable and customized for academia, industry, governments and societal partners in the whole of Europe.
ACCOMPLISSH aims to:
• To establish a collaboration platform with partners from government, academic, private and third sectors (quadruple helix);
• To deliver an innovative model of valorisation;
• To analyse the potential and challenges to SSH valorisation;
• To bring a unified approach to SSH research impact to European universities;
• To serve as an expert platform from which SSH knowledge can be transferred;
• To develop new methods of research design and communications;
• To identify barriers and enablers of value chain innovation from the SSH perspective;
• To provide training and tools for both SSH researchers and research users to bridge the academic/non-academic gap and interconnect;
• To actively contribute to SSH research as a cross-cutting theme throughout Horizon 2020 and beyond.
The ACCOMPLISSH platform is consisting of 14 universities from 12 countries:
University of Groningen
University of Glasgow
University of Zagreb
University of Tartu
Sapienza University of Rome
University of Göttingen
University of Debrecen
University of Ghent
University of Barcelona
University of Coimbra
Tallinn University is responsible of the Work Package 6 of the project, Dissemination. During the project results of co-creation identification will be developed in a Valorisation concept. The output and results will be disseminated to the Quadruple Helix partners in training. To increase the impact of training results need to be translated for the different target groups to make it work. This will be the task of Tallinn University.
