Co-creation as a strategy for universities May 4, 2018

Universities are increasingly needed to address global challenges. In particular, the humanities and social sciences have played an important role in anticipating social changes and solving problems alongside traditional technological solutions. These are the starting points and observations in a brand new publication “Co-creation. A Guide to Deepening Collaboration between Universities and Business Companies”.

In this seminar we will hear an introduction on the recent publication from one of its authors, Head of UH research services, Maarit Haataja, with a commentary from University Lecturer Leena Ripatti-Torniainen. The themes to be discussed during the seminar include but are not limited to the following topics:

  • Strategies of co-creation at the UH – what are they?
  • What are the rationales for promoting co-creation in the university context?
  • What are the practical methods and approaches for advancing co-creation and how do they work?

The seminar will take place on Friday, May 4th, at 13-15 o’clock at the Consumer Society Research Centre (Unioninkatu 40, Helsinki), seminar room C216.
