Welcome to the 'Co-production of public services conference 2024'. The conference call for papers now.
Co-creation and co-production refer to citizens being involved as co-designers and/or co-implementers of public services, alongside ‘regular’ service providers, i.e. government or non-profit professionals.
We seek innovative contributions on various aspects of co-production, including but not limited to the following themes:
- Sustainability and Scalability: Conditions that promote or inhibit the ability of co-production initiatives to scale-up; factors contributing to long-term sustainability of co-production
- Differences between co-production and co-creation: Refining definitional clarity, variations across borders, challenges and opportunities of co-production and co-creation
- Measurement and evaluation of co-production: Methodologies and best practices for evaluating the effectiveness of co-production projects
- Outcomes and Effects of Co-production: Dive deeper into the outcomes and effects of co-production on public services and society; long-term impacts (positive or negative) and implications for policymakers and practitioners
- Managing organizations that engage in co-production: Strategies, structures and leadership of organizations that co-produce with citizens
- Co-production and wicked problems: The value of co-production in tackling problems such as green transitions, refugee management and ageing populations
- Digital co-production: How new technologies shift the nature of co-production, and the challenges this brings about
