Tool: Co-creation for policy tuner

Resource Type

Co-creation is a guiding principle for TIP, vital for ensuring that multiple perspectives can be understood and visions of alternative practice aligned. This tool was developed by TIPC and Cristian Matti at the Joint Research Centre at the European Commission to bring to life – in an online workshop setting – the ‘co-creation for policy’ tuner, a self-assessment checklist for the design of policy co-creation processes.

The tuner was developed by EIT Climate-KIC and the Joint Research Centre for the handbook ‘Co-creation for Policy’. It helps us to design and fine tune a co-creation process to create an environment favourable to dialogue, exchange of ideas, trust, motivation and change, The tool can be used to reflect on the stages of the co-creation process, guided by a series of variables, each of which affects the others in a systemic way.



Our thanks to Cristian Matti at the Joint Research Centre and colleagues at EIT Climate-KIC and the JRC for kindly sharing this work for adaptation through the TIP Resource Lab.

An introduction to the tuner in its original form can be found in Chapter 3 of the following publication:

Important: Duplicating the tool

This resource is a Master version of the tool. To use it, you will need to duplicate it to your own Miro account.

How to duplicate the Board

  • First, make sure you have your own Miro account. Researchers may be able to access a free educational plan for staff at educational institutions
  • Click on the ‘download’ link to access the Lab master board
  • Then click on the title
  • Click ‘duplicate’ – this will open another board with ‘Copy’ in the title
  • Rename the tool and save the URL

You will need to complete this process for each board. If you are using a tool with multiple groups, you can either: (a) create a different board for each group or (b) copy the tool multiple times on the same board. We recommend (b) to avoid confusion over board links.

If you are new to Miro, there is a short intro here.

If you accidentally change the Resource Lab Master, don’t worry! – please
leave a message in the feedback section below and the Lab team will be able to update it.
