Abstract

ACCOMPLISSH, led by the University of Groningen, is a Consortium including, besides CES, 12 other European Universities: University of Glasgow, University of Copenhagen, Mälardalen University, Newcastle University, University of Zagreb, University of Tartu, Sapienza University of Rome, University of Göttingen, University of Debrecen, University of Ghent, University of Barcelona and Tallinn University.

ACCOMPLISSH’s aim is to come up, within three years with an innovative valorisation concept together with 14 universities from 12 countries. The concept is to be up-scaled on a European level. Analyzing co-creation processes in theory as well as in practice will develop the concept. Knowledge institutions, companies, governmental institutions and civil society, the so-called “quadruple helix”, will take part in the whole process. We will not only be looking at elements that make co-creation and valorisation possible, but we will also identify barriers that prevent these particular processes.

We will examine how results from a Social Sciences and Humanities focal point will largely affect companies, governmental institutions and civil society. Moreover, we will examine the research concept: to what degree can we valorise the research question by not only looking at the scientific point of view but also looking at societal challenges.
