Co-creation is a non-linear process that involves multiple actors and stakeholders in the ideation, implementation and assessment of product services, policies and systems. It aims to improve their efficiency and effectiveness, andthe satisfaction of those who take part in the process.

The SISCODE Toolbox aims to facilitate the design and implementation of co-creation journeys for the SISCODE laboratories, focussing on better understanding and prioritisation of the particularities of each context. The selection of the existing tools and toolkits will support the development of the design-based process from the problem analysis to the ideation of a solution, the development of a prototype and its experimentation in a real-world context. The main goal of the SISCODE Toolbox is to provide support for the co-creation labs in making sense of existing data, tools and toolkits.
