Is it possible that the best regulations and laws are those that are designed directly with citizens and civil society? What exactly do the buzzwords "co-creation" and "co-design" mean in this context? The five-week seminar answers these questions and provides basic knowledge in a simple way that is needed to explore new ways of working directly with citizens and to overcome the boundaries between society, science and innovation.


The seminar is specifically designed for people working in policymaking but is also generally aimed at anyone interested in the methodology of co-creation and its implementation in policymaking. In addition to a general introduction to co-creation methods by experts, participants will gain insights into practical examples where the involvement of citizens from the beginning of the process has enabled the development of effective and meaningful solutions to relevant societal problems. 


  • Week 1: Why is policymaking in urgent need of innovation?
  • Week 2: How can user-centricity and co-creation improve policies?
  • Week 3: What is the (real) problem?
  • Week 4: How can we co-design solutions to our community’s problems?
  • Week 5: How can we implement solutions and make them sustainable over time?




Interested parties can access the online seminar after free registration online via the platforms POK (Polimi Open Knowledge) and EU-Academy. Up to two hours per week should be planned for participation. The course language is English, with subtitles available in German, French, Italian, Spanish and other languages.



"SISCODE - Co-Design for society in innovation and science" is a project funded under the European Research Framework Programme Horizon 2020, in which the Social Research Unit of TU Dortmund University is involved as a scientific partner.
