Co-creation means creating tools and services together with users. The users know what they need, while the technology developers know what is possible.

A continuous dialogue and collaboration between them will guarantee that the tools and services truly fit into the users’ operational routines. This enables wide uptake beyond the project’s areas and timeframe, which in turn increases impact towards enhanced sustainability.

The first co-creation meeting in the Region of Central Macedonia took place in February and March. See below a few photos with the people involved.
