Knowledge and its construction are the basis of the information used in society to meet life's challenges. Social innovation laboratories are an alternative that uses the open innovation approach to co-create knowledge. This article presents the validation of the K-Social-C questionnaire that measures the processes of social construction of knowledge from the open innovation approach. The instrument is structured in 5 parts, the first two to collect demographic data and the following 3 involve the mentioned constructs to present in an objective way the measurement of the constructs and their variables established by the literature. Expert evaluation was used to determine through statistical techniques the Kendall concordance coefficient and the content validity coefficient that confirm that K-Social-C is a valid and reliable questionnaire. The results of the validation will continue to be consolidated with the application of the questionnaire in the various laboratories where it is used to collect data.
