symposium

The inaugural coCreationcamp #01 took place in 2011, on Nov. 20 and 21, in Brussels. The Symposium Day on Nov. 21 allowed to look at dimensions of co-creation. The day before, on November 20, we explored specific themes in workshops.

Speakers, ranging from a wide variety of areas, will share their points of view about co-creation, collaboration, open innovation, crowd sourcing, …

coCreationcamp is an enabling infrastructure for the generation of ideas and hence is playing a catalyst role. coCreation looks at innovation mechanisms designing and producing “with” people, and not only “for” people.

Each slot (P for People, for Public, for Private, for Platform) will allow speakers to share different positions and interact with participants. Join the conversations ! The speakers are listed here and will take part actively during the day, interacting with others point of view, bringing critical discourse, reframing issues and approaches.

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.
