CO-CREATIVE GOVERNANCE INCREASES YOUR SCOPE OF ACTION
Collaborative and strategic governance of research teams and project consortia
Co-creative governance is important wherever solutions to complex problems need to be supported by many different actors. Frequently, (international) partners from different disciplines and academic traditions are concerned with finding solutions to societal challenges – as are public administration, industry and civil society. The challenge in bringing these actors together lies in accounting for the diverging organisational structures, decision-making logics and seemingly incompatible goals they bring to the table.
Co-creative governance is thus based on the iterative exchange of heterogeneous knowledge considering the different perspectives, agendas, and interests of the involved actors on an equal footing. New interfaces and common visions emerge, significantly increasing the stakeholders’ scope of action through co-creative governance!
Do you lead (research) teams or project consortia? Are you part of a management team at your university? Do you work on scientific or societal transformation processes? Do you decide (with your project partners) on the implementation of socially relevant innovations?
Then co-creative governance could be an interesting concept for you!
