The CoSIE project contributed to democratic dimensions and social inclusion through co-creating public services by engaging diverse citizen groups and stakeholders. Utilizing blended data sources (open data, social media) with innovative deployment of ICT (data-analytics, Living Lab, Community reporting) in nine pilots, the project introduced the culture of experiments that encompasses various stakeholders for co-creating service innovations. The CoSIE project had two overarching aims: i) advance the active shaping of service priorities by end users and their informal support networks, ii) engage citizens, especially groups often called ‘hard to reach’, in the collaborative design of public services.
