Research – evaluation of co-production

Valuing Different Perspectives (April 2014 – November 2015) The project sought to evaluate previous co-produced interventions produced by researchers and community organisations in the neighbourhood of Wester Hailes, west Edinburgh. In doing so, it also built in a comparison of academic-led and co-produced approaches to evaluating the outcomes of the previous co-produced outputs. This enabled a comparison of the usefulness of different types of knowledge that were produced. Additional outcomes included a co-produced report on […]

Research – mental health

Co-production in mental health: not just another guide (2018) This guide shares learning about: where and how things are working well features of different models of co-production how co-production contributes to delivering better experiences and outcomes for people with mental health conditions others’ views of hurdles and how to overcome them. We took a three pronged approach to gather information for the guide. We conducted a review of the existing co-production knowledge base, including theory, […]

Research – co-creation in science

SISCODE: Co-design for Society in Innovation and Science (2018 – 2021) SISCODE is an EU-funded project aimed at stimulating the use of co-creation methodologies in policy design. Bottom-up design driven approaches will be used to develop responsible research, innovation and policies. The project consortium will run European-wide research to understand the dynamics within these co-creation environments as well as the outcomes we can obtain from such approaches. Ten co-creation labs spread around Europe will work […]

Research – housing

PhD. The geographies of place for tenant participation in housing associations: A case study of Merthyr Tydfil, Wales (2016-2019) This PhD research is in partnership with Merthyr Tydfil Housing Association, exploring tenant participation within the organisation from a geographical perspective. It addresses key issues and challenges from both an organisational and tenant perspective and considers spatial and temporal methods to challenge practice, improve engagement and promote sustainable participation within the organisation. The importance of participatory […]

Research – planning

Co-creation Network (January 2017-December 2020) Part of the EU-funded Rise programme, Co-Creation is a new 4-year project that aims to bring together different actors, such as researchers, policymakers, residents and artists, to ‘co-create’ understanding about different urban neighbourhoods and to address disadvantage. The project has three main objectives: Firstly, we aim to develop an innovative conceptual framework for the analysis of socio-spatial segregation, including territorial stigmatisation, that integrates interdisciplinary theoretical approaches ranging from urban planning, […]

Research – social justice

Co-production and social injustice (2018-19) Co-production implies a collaborative approach to public service reform, whereby service-users and citizens are regarded as equal partners in each stage of the process. Underpinned by a philosophy which values individuals, communities and the virtues of social capital and reciprocity; co-production contrasts starkly with traditional, service-led, top-down ways of public service reform whereby decisions are made exclusively by those in positions of power. Instead, it is an approach which endorses […]

Research – health and wellbeing

Exploring, measuring and enhancing the co-production of health and wellbeing at the national, regional and local levels through comparative case studies in Sweden and England. (Samskapa research programme 2019-2024) Co-creation, co-production and co-design are advocated as effective ways of involving citizens in the design, management, provision and evaluation of health and social care services. Although numerous case studies describe the nature and level of co-production in individual projects, there remain significant gaps in the evidence […]
