Co Production and Co Governance: Strategic Management, Public Value and Co Creation in the Renewal of Public Agencies across Europe

Project: Research

Project Details


The public sector is in the process of transforming itself from a bureaucratic authority, via an efficient service provider, to an arena for co-creation. The COGOV project studies how strategic management and institutional design may enable local governments and public agencies to exploit the drivers and overcome the barriers to the co-production or co-creation of innovative public value outcomes. The Roskilde team is responsible for conducting a series of design experiments aiming to enhance co-creation, but also participates in the other parts of the project.
