Mila Gascó in ten sentences: What are the main assets of your keynote, expectations and your vision of the future? #cedem16
- More and more, public administrations are forced to co-produce
- Co-production does not need ICT but ICT facilitate and speed up the processes of co-production
- ICT-enabled co-production is meaningful in the framework of open government
- Co-production has mainly to do with one of the three open government dimensions: collaboration
- Open data and social media are important tools to do co-production
- A co-production process is an open innovation process
- Co-production can be related to open services
- ICT-enabled co-production can be analyzed according to two criteria: ICT role in the process and citizens’ level of involvement
- Two sets of factors influence co-production: organizational factors and citizens factors
- ICT-enabled co-production is also influenced by the ICT factor
