Wir freuen uns sehr über die Veröffentlichung unseres Artikels mit dem Titel “Co-Creating the Future: The Power of Social Makerthons in Urban Innovation Ecosystems” im pnd-rethinking planning-Magazin der RWTH Aachen. Es geht darin um Co-Creation-Prozesse und innovative Kollaborations-Formate mit konkreten Praxisbeispielen aus unserer Arbeit der letzten 2 Jahre.


The COVID19 pandemic has shown that technical innovation is not enough when it comes to addressing complex societal challenges. Key qualifications in times of transformation are social innovation, creativity, and participatory open innovation processes. Social Makerthons can be applied to test co-creative methodologies, aiming to install more open and inclusive innovation ecosystems in cities and regions. Online or hybrid, Social Makerthons experiment with digital and physical spaces. In Social Makerthons, notions of experts and non-experts are broken-up. Researchers, citizens, policy makers and other stakeholders are seen as partners, even allies, in the need to respond to local and regional challenges. The article describes examples of four projects applying this format in urban environments during the pandemic.
