Co-creation labs: Challenges and Opportunities

Transfer

Feasability Study for setting up of Co-Creation Labs


As part of their efforts to Re-Think Transfer in the Arqus Research and Innovation project, Alliance partners have worked on the issue of co-creation in transfer, carrying out a feasibility study for the setting up of co-creation labs at universities where they don’t exist yet.

The feasibility study has used information from:

“A Co-Creation lab at university would be a collaborative space – physical or virtual one – designed to bring together students, faculty, and external partners to work on projects and initiatives that tackle real-world challenges (Prahalad and Ramaswamy, 2004). By working together and sharing knowledge, the participants of the Co-Creation lab can create innovative solutions that positively impact their communities”.
