Innovation space stakeholders

The InCo model of innovation space stakeholders is the backbone of the movement and stresses interdependency and the embeddedness of the space and its stakeholders in the creative and innovative processes.

The InCo model of innovation space stakeholders comprises the state, local communities, non-governmental organisations, universities, research institutions, educational systems, the media, artist and the creative industry, and enterprises, gathered in five groups:

1. Public administration: the state, local communities
- The key task of this group of stakeholders is establishing the space and drafting the rules of the game through political levers, measures and activities (e.g. taxation policy, financial stimulation);

2. Education: universities, education systems (kindergartens, primary and secondary schools)
- The key task of this group is promoting knowledge and expanding the borders of the known with emphasis on the development of creativity of individuals and identification of their natural talents;

3. Institutes (research and development)
- The key task of this group is to generate the basic and applicative breakthroughs in knowledge;

4. Opinion formers: the media, artists and the creative industry, non-governmental organisations
- The key task of this group is to provide the creative dimension and a value system, as well as to challenge the borders of the known in our perception of ourselves and the world around us;

5. Economy: enterprises
- The key task of this group is to generate value and direct it towards further development of key resources (human, financial and material); it is a key stimulator of systematic changes in the space.

Each of these stakeholders plays an important role in the establishing of social consciousness. The last determines the extent to which the creative pervasiveness of any specific stakeholder or the innovativeness of the society can predominate.
