Creative Ring Sum-It
Sum-It is only possible thanks to the collaboration of the following partners:
OrganiCity is a European collaborative project that investigates in which ways experimentation-as-a-Service is an impactful approach to city-making.
This presentation will share learnings from the project on how to engage a variety of stakeholders in cocreating future sustainable cities through experimentation.
Experimentation-as-a-Service provides a low-risk approach for city authorities to crowdsource, test and scale-up innovative solutions to the challenges in their city.

Transformative tools for unboxing knowledge
Baltan initiates experimentation on the crossroads of art, design, science and technology, evoking inquisitive ideas by bridging disciplines.
In the past 10 years, Baltan brought together (un)related fields to create a larger body of knowledge.
During this presentation, we will show few examples of practical tools to open up knowledge and foster cross-disciplinary understanding and collaboration.
Where has the ‘mobile’ in urban ‘mobility’ gone? Cities usually tackle the Mobility Challenge with impressive infrastructural interventions, urban planning, smart traffic systems, etc. A more service design based approach is currently also catching on quite well, sometimes fuelled by a co-creative design approach.
MUV is exploring a totally new angle: gameplay! How can a game have an impact on (local) mobility behaviour. Can the data recorded and generated by the game be the glue that holds together an ecosystem of inhabitants, policy makers, local organisations and businesses, hackers and makers, data specialists and municipality departments?
Win-Winnovation: successfully creating 1+1>3 cooperations
The win-winnovation approach is based on a 15 years practical experiences with truly interdisciplinary cooperations.
The presentation will illustrate the key learnings & pitfalls to set up successful cooperations based on real life examples.

Passion based co-creation
Viljami Lyytikäinen, Design Factory
More and more, I make it my goal and expertise to create “organized serendipity”: contexts that allow people and experts from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to interact. Baltan Laboratories, Creative Lab Brainport, Creative Ring… are just some of the initiatives I have the privilege of strategically being involved in. I experience on an almost daily basis the energy and new ideas that arise from collisions in purposeful- and innovation-driven ecosystems.
Curiosity is what drives my ambition. I am always on the lookout to learn from experts, in the broadest sense. Whatever is brought to me with passion, expertise and positivism has the potential to inspire me. This can literally be anything: from an explanation on how to grow vegetables to a Masterclass in theoretical physics. Read more

In this co-creation session on digital tools to tackle social innovation, participants are invited to share their experiences on successful mechanisms to scale digital social innovation (programs, practices, instruments, institutional arrangements), and map them along several key axes (funding, capacity building, societal engagement, dissemination, etc).
This will be followed by a collective elaboration on those contributions to propose better policy. Participants will have the chance of shaping thought and policy in their fields, and will come out of the session with a rich understanding of current best practices in promoting digital innovation for societal impact.
This session is organized by the Barcelona City Council in collaboration with the DSISCALE EC-funded project (www.digitalsocial.eu).

Learn all about the methodology developed by TNO on how to measure creativity at school and an instrument to monitor creativity. This session also focusses on how to implement a project in the educational curriculum. The workshop leaders encourage you to also bring in your own insights on creativity in an educational context.
A workshop by Stichting Cultuur Eindhoven in the framework of the program creative industries
10:00-10:30 and 11:00 – 12:30
We see libraries and library-buildings taking a new and crucial role in the innovation ecosystem and in the connection between creators and the broad public.
Each speaker will share his experience and vision.
For instance Bibliotheek Eindhoven has developed, based on the Design Thinking methodology, developed a tool that provides the Library-visitor with book suggestions based on user data. Library-visitors get suggestions for new books to read based on the ‘others also read’ principle. This innovation is important because the expectation of the consumer in 2018 is increasingly shifting to ‘What’s next’. Think of functionalities such as Spotify’s Discover Weekly or the recommendations of Netflix.
Organized by De Bibliotheek Eindhoven / De Krook (Gent) / Barcelona Libraries.
In this workshop, you will be offered the Make with Espoo toolkit developed to invite citizens, associations and enterprises to co-creation of and open participation in solutions to wicked urban challenges. The workshop uses as an example the ”service centre” concept that merges everyday city life with a number of public services in a shopping mall. You will be informed about the background of the toolbox and a hands-on exercise is arranged to let you familiarise yourself with the actual tools. You will go home with a set of conceptual and practical tools, and a commitment by the City of Espoo to engage in further dialogue with interested participants.
In Espoo, the Make with Espoo toolkit has been developed under the 6Aika programme based on the learnings of Espoo re-defining their public service offering.
The insights are widely applicable for any set of services towards any given target audience.
Organized by the City of Espoo.
13:30 – 15:00, 15:30 – 17:00
