Participative processes and the empowerment of citizens are seen as
central aspects of social innovation, which involves collaborative activities
between the private, public and third sectors. It is important to identify the
factors influencing citizen involvement, and we therefore investigate
how people
can be encouraged to contribute to improving societal well-being and to enhance
partnerships between citizens, regions and also the profit and non-profit
sectors. In particular, we investigate the motivation of citizens involved in
the co-production of social innovation. We also provide descriptions of
specific citizen- and public authority-related outcomes of the co-production
process, which are missing from most previous studies (Voorberg,
Bekkers, & Tummers, 2015). We also identify actions that might facilitate the
co-production of social innovation. In this study, we report a successful case
of co-produced social innovation and derive findings from it.
