Abstract

Co-creation as a process was explored mostly from customer - service provider point of view. However in the case of higher education, there are multiple customers which receive benefits of higher education. In Nordic countries, most salient stakeholders are participating in curriculum co-creation and shape curriculum content and/or structure in some way. Nordic Higher Education programme managers are interviewed in order to construct a Grounded Theory and uncover, explore and define social processes related to the role of salience in multi-stakeholder co-creation. These institutions are Copenhagen Business School (CBS), The Royal Academy of Fine Arts and Conservation (KADK), CERN Idea Square Challenge Based Innovation Programme, Universities of The Future knowledge alliance project and Nordic Rebels Programme. The research shows with increasing institutional constrains and additional stakeholder claims, stakeholder salience is shifting according to organisational levels in which co-creative activities occur.
