Scaling of innovations is seen as an inescapable answer to the growing urgency to tackle grand societal challenges. Co-creation is an increasingly key method for the involvement of a variety of actors to realize the inevitable scaling. Not all co-creation methods, however, spread equally and work to the same success in different contexts.

This online workshop series will explore and analyze the apparent paradox between, the (cultural, political, social) local situatedness of co-creation practices; and the (perceived) need for generalizing, transferring, or ‘scaling up’ co-creation practices to different socio-cultural settings.

The online workshop series is part of the H2020 project and will bring together practitioners, policy-makers and academics in the fields of Urban Energy, Robotics and Autonomous Driving.

We are excited to invite you to the following events as part of SCALINGS Online Series – Innovating together: Responsible scaling of co-creation:
