Title: Digital Technology, volatility & Co-production/Co-production – Community: University Partnerships
Venue: Staffordshire University, Blackheath Lane, Stafford, ST18 0YB – Room BL034
Dr Steve Suckling: Digital technologies, Volatility and Co-Production.
Digital technologies increase volatility, making the world less stable. To research effectively in a less stable world, new methods are needed. This talk examines the rise of co-production across the commercial and public sectors, as organisations and individuals look to continually improve and adapt services in an environment of constant feedback and disruption.
Penny Vincent: Co-production – Community: University Partnerships
People are expert in their own lives. Connecting local knowledge, skills and experience leads to community action which directly addresses citizens priorities and empowers people to influence public decisions. This reduces health inequalities. (Hopkins 2014). We will explore 2 examples of co-production led by community and voluntary sector organisations in partnership with Staffordshire University to unpick this assertion and identify learning.REGISTER HERE
