social innovation
Social innovation
  • “a new idea that works in meeting social goals” (Mulgan, 2006)
  • Or, “social innovation is a process of change emerging from the creative re-combination of existing assets (from social capital to historical heritage, from traditional craftsmanship to accessible advanced technology), which aims to achieve socially recognized goals in a new way” (Manzini 2007)
  • Social innovation can be top-down, bottom up or hybrid (Manzini 2007)
community of practice
Community of Practice

Etienne Wenger:

“Communities of practice are groups of people who share a

concern or a passion for something they do and learn how

to do it better as they interact regularly.” (, 2013 )

co production definition and good practice
Co-production: definition and good practice

Production characterised by co-ownership throughout a process. Power to establish design, deliver a project and disseminate results is shared between researcher and user/practitioner; governmental or private authority and community:

  • Aspire to equitable partnerships .
  • Develop joint goals and arrangements with partners in project governance, design, delivery, evaluation and dissemination.
  • Establish a shared language – a process not an event requiring considerable attention.
  • Complex entities (e.g. the ‘community’) should not be treated as if they are homogenous
  • Consider the needs of marginalised and excluded partners as well as the mainstream and well resourced.
  • A long term vision is likely to be required, even if only short term resource can be identified.

See Hart, A. and Wolff, D. (2006) Developing local "Communities of Practice" through local Community-University Partnerships, Planning Practice & Research 21 (1) 121-138.
