Project: Co-creation of public services: drivers, mechanisms of citizens engagement and social inclusion

Co-creation of public services in Europe is present predominantly in marketing, education, healthcare and policy sectors. In this sense, the policy area addressed by SoCaTel, is on the boundary between a policy sector where co-creation has already been introduced (Healthcare) and one where co-creation is still very much an emerging approach (social services). The project will compare the impact of co-creation on LTC services in different political configurations and different methods of social intervention.
