Getting involved in Social Innovation Research – participation and experimentation David Ludlow, Centre for Research in Sustainable Planning and Environments, University of the West of England
www.cses.co.ukwww.cses.co.uk 2 Getting involved in Social Innovation Research – participation and experimentation Experimentation – new ways of conducting research and organising knowledge Lessons from parallel projects How to interact with national and EU funded research Practical steps in building partnerships Organising continuing work in this area
www.cses.co.ukwww.cses.co.uk 3 SEISMIC helps tackle Europe’s biggest urban problems by engaging citizens, identifying social innovation needs, and contributing to future urban policies and research strategies Builds diverse networks of urban stakeholders to propose effective, widely agreed solutions. It then engages the public in creative ways, so that research learns from citizens, and citizens learn from research
www.cses.co.ukwww.cses.co.uk 4 SEISMiC creates a platform to discuss and explore paths of integrated urban development Contributes to JPI Urban Europe by adding a social dimension to its Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda as well as making sure a wider selection of stakeholders participate in the JPI Urban Europe Forum

Horizon 2020 & JPI Urban Europe) Assist existing key actors to promote their work and reinforce their interaction

www.cses.co.ukwww.cses.co.uk 11 Pressure on all public administrations to provide efficient, open and citizen-centric public services Due to the increased use of mobile technology as well as the increasing availability of public information, data and online services, public services can be transformed Coupling open public data and services with information and services offered by the private sector can lead to innovative, user-friendly and personalised services that can be accessed easily Aim is to help the interaction of citizens and businesses with public administrations – for example - combination of public and private sector services, through mobile technologies
www.cses.co.ukwww.cses.co.uk 12 Essential to promote innovation to foster efficient, open citizen-centric public services. This innovation also addresses the challenge of social change and user needs To improve efficiency, effectiveness and quality of public services, the public sector needs to implement new processes, products, services and methods of delivery Further research, identifying the specific challenges of the public sector, such as policy domain requirements and the needs of targeted citizens or businesses is needed Requires multidisciplinary research taking into account the societal, political as well as human factors, including citizens and civil servants - where relevant involving users and citizens in the design of public services is critical
