The proposed meeting of the seminar is focused on the presentation of research materials relating to ‘governance through collaboration,’ ‘co-creation’, and ‘co-production’ of public policy. In this regard, the conference welcomes reports describing the best practices of the implementation of collaboration in public policy in different cultural contexts, and the relationship between the concepts of ‘co-creation’ and ‘co-production’ and "inclusive innovation" in the description of public policy in new developing economies as well as ensuring transparency, citizen-generated data and Internet resources for public policy. Moreover the seminar welcomes reports describing innovative processes of collaboration in policy design, the structure and organization of public policy, public governance in different fields of policies in individual countries and in a comparative perspective.
