Perspectives

Private corporations like Philips, Procter & Gamble, Nokia, ... are opening up innovation modalities, especially in the R&D phases. A number of companies are also looking to tap into the creative input at the market level. In parallel, public institutions in Denmark, in Finland, ... are exploring new collaboration models, empowering and engaging everyday people.

Some questions which will be investigated during the coCreationcamp are :
How can we define value, specifically in systems where co-creation is key?
Can value be defined upfront before engaging in the process?
How can sustainable and systemic input and value be measured?
Can co-creation offer new ways of increasing, sharing or rapidly creating value?
How do we provide people with the means and tools to create their own solutions?

Let's add your questions and explore co-creation routes.
