Background information

 
The co-creation trajectory
 
 
 
Co-creation partnerships: towards value!
 
The co-creation trajectory consists of a set of activities to move ideas to a next level.   The current matchmaking event aims at discovering potential partnerships: who has the right expertise to move a project forward?  Project partnerships will be formed during and after this event.  Within these project partnerships, the projects will be launched and executed.  Throughout the co-creation trajectory the project partnerships will be further guided towards a valuable projects.  
DSP Valley supports the TTD partners in running this co-creation trajectory.
