With nine real-life co-creation pilots CoSIE project aims to
1. advance the active shaping of service priorities by end users and their informal support networks
2. engage citizens, especially groups often called ‘hard to reach’, in the collaborative design of public services.
We have encompassed the following dimensions in the selection of pilots: Coverage of vulnerable and “hard to reach” groups, significant societal challenges, evidence of innovation, and different life courses stages (children and young people, adults of working age, and older people). Vulnerable groups include immigrants, Roma, long-term unemployed, people in the criminal justice system, and those disadvantaged by geographic location.
