Co-creation and multi-stakeholder system
Complex research questions require an integral approach in which not only different research domains cooperate, but in which different social partners are also actively involved. We also refer to this as a multi-stakeholder system, aiming for a co-creative research approach.
What does this mean for HOUSE in concrete terms? All participants can influence the research process and its results. Older people are central to this research project. They are therefore not only passively questioned or informed about the HOUSE project, they actively contribute to the project. To realise this, we have set up a House Older People Panel (i.e. the HOP team). This is a team of 4-6 committed older people who support the researchers and provide feedback. For example, they can be engaged to provide advice on substantive texts, to screen survey questions for older people, to discuss analyses of interviews together, or to test a workshop format.
Workshop on personas with the advisory committee
In addition to involving older people as co-creation partners, various other social partners are also engaged in key roles in the HOUSE project. These are organisations from different sectors, including the care sector, the building sector, the design world, and policy-making. Get to know the 31 actors in the advisory committee:
