    Recommendations in brief

    This report is part of Work Package 2 in the ACCOMPLISSH project. It includes the results and

    conclusions from 14 focus group interviews with quadruple helix partners in 12 countries.

    Having considered, planned and worked with quadruple helix collaboration and co-creation in

    the fields of Social Sciences and the Humanities (SSH), the authors of the report can come with

    the following recommendations:

    o Allocate reasonable time, sufficient financial funds and adequate human resources

    o Involve all stakeholders when defining the common area of concern from the outset

    o Nurture stakeholder relationships

    o Address differences in institutional logic, rationale, incentives and roles

    o Address differences in nomenclature, language and modes of communication

    o Challenge one’s own and each other’s thinking

    o Provide platforms and spaces for interaction

    o Make use of facilitators and translators, and intermediaries to optimise collaboration

    o Learn from good practice and research

    o Address questions of impact, validation and valorisation from the outset

    o Make the case for SSH

    Introduction

    Europe 2020, the European Union’s ten-year growth strategy, aims at delivering smart,

    sustainable and inclusive growth. The strategy sets targets in the areas of employment, research

    and development, climate change, education and poverty, and social exclusion for the coming

    decade. It is within this context that the Horizon 2020 scheme highlights impact, co-creation,

    and quadruple helix cooperation vehicles for innovation and in response to societal challenges.

    It is also here that the knowledge and research results of the social sciences and humanities

    (SSH) play a crucial role.

    At the same time, definitions and understanding of such concepts are ambiguous if not

    even contradictory, which makes it difficult to determine their applicability and effectiveness.

    This being said, there is a need for clearer definitions and viable and measurable valorisation

    processes to determine the value and outcomes of such processes. By the same token, there is a

    need to move beyond concepts and models into the actual work with these matters: to talk to the

    people from academia, government, industry and societal partners about their experiences with

    co-creation and the considerations these experiences have involved and the lessons that have

    been learned.

    To move beyond traditional and linear valorisation approaches (i.e. from academia to

    society), it is frequently claimed that quadruple helix actors need to be committed to and

    actively engaged in co-creation. Yet, due to its being boundary transgressive, co-creation is

    multifaceted and seldom naturally occurring. Also, collaboration and co-creation are often

    obstructed by differences in organisational culture, organisational logics and ideological

    disagreement among the actors involved.

    For all the reasons above, the ACCOMPLISSH consortium, made up of 14 universities from

    12 countries (representing a ran
