SISCODE is a EU funded project aimed at stimulating the use of co-creation methodologies in policy design and use bottom-up design driven methodologies to pollinate Responsible Research and Innovation and Science Technology and Innovation Policies.
In order to achieve this goal the project consortium is runs a European wide research to understand the dynamics within these co-creation environments as well as the outcomes we can obtain from such approaches. These results will then be compared to devise a set of co-creation methodologies suited for scalability and replication. The project understands that experimentation is a key element to succeed in its objectives. 10 co-creation labs spread around Europe will work with design driven approaches to co-creation to generate real life knowledge. They will each select a challenge to apply to tackle in order to find solutions together with local stakeholder groups. This will give policy makers the opportunity to test new and more open ways of conceiving policies to reconnect policy design with grassroots initiatives and citizens. Having access to co-creation in real life contexts will ease their way to transform the way policies are conceived and to close the divide between citizens and policy making
THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK & TOOLS FOR UNDERSTANDING CO-CREATION IN CONTEXTS. The current report summarizes the findings of SISCODE theoretical and empirical background research, that relies on an extensive literature review as well as the exploitation of recent scientific discourses on co-creation in Responsible Research &Innovation and policy making as well as on design for policy with the aim to prepare a pattern for further research to be carried out within SISCODE project
CO-CREATION IN RRI PRACTICES & STI POLICIES. The report explores and connects Responsible Research and Innovation with current attempts to apply design knowledge in policy formation and implementation, which have been so far treated as separate streams of research and experimentation, with the twofold aim of providing a conceptual basis for the development of the SISCODE project, and a system of methods and tools for its experimental approach to co-creation.
RRI RESEARCH LANDSCAPE. This document looks into the place of co-creation in the RRI Research Landscape, identifying, recording and comparing previous and on-going EU (and national) framework initiatives and projects that have developed and tested relevant Responsible Research and Innovation approaches and methodologies.
Led by the Politecnico di Milano, SISCODE is governed by a multidisciplinary consortium of institutions. This partnership brings together 17 organisations with extensive networks, world class research experience, policy expertise and a proven track record of collaboration in complex projects implementation.
The partners are based in 13 European countries and include 3 networks with members spread around the world. Partners include world class research institutions specialised in applied research and with strong policy connections. The project also counts with the expertise of institutions that combine research and a practitioner focus having a long experience in supporting and conducting co-creation processes.
The expertise of the consortium will be backed by a scientific committee to ensure the achievement of high level scientific results and impact. Members appointed are representative from the fields of policy, science, innovation, design and science communication.
