Project description

Traditional valorisation approaches focus on linear processess: from academia to society. In order to bring valorisation to a highter level, all relevant actors need to cooperate in an equal setting: co-creation. Co-creation transcends boundaries, but it does not happen naturally. Therefore, the ACCOMPLISSH consortium, consisting of 14 universities from 12 countries (representing all the sub disciplines in SSH), will actively involve the other partners from the so called Quadruple Helix (industry, governments and societal partners) within the project. The project has chosen an Open Innovation approach.

Role of Ghent University
Ghent University, together with the University of Glasgow, is work package leader of WP5 “Development of valorisation concept across the value chain”. A theoretical framework for the valorisation concept will be developed and constructed, as a result of the synthesis of co-creation theory and practice results from WP2 “Analysing co-­‐creation in theory and in practice”. This theoretical framework guides the analysis of co-creation into the valorisation concept. This result in an innovative, transnational and transferable valorisation concept that has proven its effectiveness in practice.
