The STARTS IoT Co-Creation Workshops are methods to innovate the processes of creation of values of the IoT European Large-Scale Pilots Projects (LSPs). Engagement of the full range of stakeholders of the LSPs, ranging from the promoter - the European Commission (EC) - to end beneficiaries, also including partners of the LSPs, Small and Medium Businesses (SMEs), startups and artists - makes of the Science, Technology and the Arts (STARTS) initiative of the Digital Single Market (DSM) the overarching principle of those methods. The Internet of Things (IoT) is at the origin of a new era of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) where consumers are no longer users. They are key active agents of innovation in the creation of new IoT specific processes, products and services. They are, for sure, assemblers and beta-testers of combinations of of-the-shelf solutions maid available by the LSPs, even potentially transforming themselves into producers - prosumers. In this process of transformation, they might even become entrepreneurs and create their own businesses as providers of new services based on the IoT platforms being implemented by the LSPs. The notion of co-creation of values builds upon the notion of value creation. Creation is, in its original sense, an artistic act. Therefore, values co-creation expands both concepts of value creation and co-creation towards wider, holistic inclusive approaches of social and economical developments, with loosing the perspective of jobs and growth.
