Each Co-Creation project is a gateway to this new urban future
Projects start from a relevant urban service and look at its weaknesses, without forgetting the interaction with other services. From there, the projects investigate a situation in which those services would cease, and explore how a new desired and sustainable balance could be achieved.
Since 2015, Innoviris, through the Co-Creation programme, has been supporting co-creative experiments and knowledge production in the service of urban resilience.
Exploring, experimenting and learning in co-creation
In a Co-Creation project, all actors involved undertake the exploratory expedition together. Co-Creation starts from the assumption that knowledge production should not be the task of academic researchers or centres of expertise alone. The projects integrate different types of knowledge and expertise, from a multitude of actors. In addition to scientific expertise, they also recognise "lived" experience, experience from a particular practice or field, institutional expertise, and so on. All these different perspectives contribute to the construction of new knowledge.
By strongly anchoring their activities, processes and objectives in society, the Co-Creation projects broaden the scope of innovative research so that it can better serve the well-being of the city.
