The governance of emerging science and innovation has been conceptualised as a major challenge for contemporary democracies. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) emerged to tackle this issue by placing an emphasis on broad public engagement in the field of policy design based on the early involvement of multiple actors - citizens, civil society, researchers, industry, public sector and policy makers.

This paper documents the experimentation conducted in one of the SISCODE living pilot in Krakow to support a public engagement action between policy makers, citizens and stakeholders. Addressing the acute issue of air pollution in Krakow led to a strategy of ecosystem activation applying co-design involving a variety of actors with a twofold objective: co-designing a policy as a prototype and experimenting with it through a process of development of tangible solutions.

Abstract

The governance of emerging science and innovation has been conceptualised as a major challenge for contemporary democracies. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) emerged to tackle this issue by placing an emphasis on broad public engagement in the field of policy design based on the early involvement of multiple actors - citizens, civil society, researchers, industry, public sector and policy makers. Nevertheless, such early engagement is facing many challenges and it rarely goes beyond the stage of consultation (Grimpe, Patel, Wilford, Niemelä & Ikonen, 2013; Delgado, Lein Kjølber & Wickson, 2010; Chilvers, 2008). The SISCODE project, funded under H2020, identifies the application of co-design approach to overcome this challenge. This paper documents the experimentation conducted in one of the SISCODE living pilot in Krakow to support a public engagement action between policy makers, citizens and stakeholders. Addressing the acute issue of air pollution in Krakow led to a strategy of ecosystem activation applying co-design involving a variety of actors with a twofold objective: co-designing a policy as a prototype and experimenting with it through a process of development of tangible solutions.
