With the publication of the first synthesis report, the S2BMRC team successfully completes the first milestone of the CoCreAid Kit 4.0 project, an Erasmus+ Cooperation Partnerships in Higher Education project.
The report focuses on digital solutions for co-creation by examining the current success factors, barriers, and requirements to digital co-creation between HEIs and NGOs. By means of desk research, digital platforms and methods were identified and checked for their suitability for digital co-creation. To get a deeper understanding of the needs and requirements of involved actors towards graphical user interfaces and digital methodologies in co-creation projects, 80 semi-structured qualitative interviews with experts in digital co-creation from HEIs and NGOs were conducted. The report provides a solid foundation for Milestone 2. The gained insights are now consolidated into a graphical user interface that serves as an all-in-one user platform for digital co-creation by integrating a knowledge base, existing platforms, and methods.
About the project CoCreAid Kit 4.0
European Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are increasingly engaged in society and therefore play a growing role in regional and social development. As a result of the increasing international cooperation, successful collaboration in the digital sphere is becoming more and more critical. However, to date, the collaboration between HEIs and NGOs in the digital sphere has been somewhat neglected, leading to a lack of insight about how to co-create successfully in a digital context.
The CoCreAid Kit 4.0 focuses on overcoming barriers to cooperation arising when HEIs and NGOs co-create digitally. The aim is to increase social impact in participating European countries and beyond. Furthermore, practical application will strengthen digital competencies among the project partners digital competences will be strengthened among the project partners through practical application.
