Platforms for transdisciplinary co-production – Stakeholder perspective on challenges and opportunities

Elma Durakovic, Sanna Isemo

Dealing with complex urban challenges are in need of cross-sectorial collaborations between different actors in our society and requires more experimental and innovative forms of institutional collaborations (May & Perry, 2016). Mistra Urban Futures has developed institutional platforms for transdisciplinary co-production that aim to tackle the complexity of urbanisation, named Local Interaction Platforms (LIPs). Based on co-governance and co-funding, giving a sense of joint leadership and ownership but also creating a third space for transdisciplinary research and mutual learning. (Perry, B et al, 2018) A space where context based, - and solution-oriented research can evolve and be formulated collaboratively.

At the Gothenburg Interaction Platform (GOLIP) this has developed into a multisectoral collaboration where different stakeholders play an important role in identifying, developing and conducting transdisciplinary research. Co-production has evolved into joint leadership between researchers and practitioners. Stakeholders involved in the Gothenburg interaction platform are often complex institutions/organisations that are organised differently ways making the collaborative work somewhat challenging. Different stakeholders have different incentives for their involvement in GOLIP. From a stakeholder perspective, what challenges are there and how does one work with the complexity as an integrated part of the Local Interaction Platform? How can these challenges be converted into opportunities?
