At the IRSPM conference in Hong Kong, we heard that we have won the best article award in Public Management Review for our article “A systematic review of co-creation and co-production: Embarking on the social innovation journey“. We want to thank the editorial board for this decision. The article is based on the EU FP7 LIPSE (Learning from Innovation in Public Sector Environments) project. An abstract and citation is shown below.

Abstract cocreation and coproduction article

This article presents a systematic review of 122 articles and books (1987–2013) of co-creation/co-production with citizens in public innovation. It analyses (a) the objectives of co-creation and co-production, (b) its influential factors and (c) the outcomes of co-creation and co-production processes. It shows that most studies focus on the identification of influential factors, while hardly any attention is paid to the outcomes. Future studies could focus on outcomes of co-creation/co-production processes. Furthermore, more quantitative studies are welcome, given the qualitative, case study, dominance in the field. We conclude with a research agenda to tackle methodological, theoretical and empirical lacunas.
