Social innovation Conference in Vienna 18-19 Nov 2015

“Pathways to Social Change” is going to be the key event on social innovation in the year 2015. It is planned and designed by mutually complementary research projects on social innovation that reach out to world-wide experiences and concepts of social innovation. The conference will connect researchers with policy makers and practitioners of social innovation. Presentations of interim research results, considerations and site visits primarily focus on:

  • The state-of-the-art of conceptualizing and doing social innovation;
  • Methods and good practices to create desirable social change;
  • Resources, means and levers making social innovation processes effective; and
  • International comparison of social innovation practices, policies and research.

The conference is hosted by two projects under the EU 7th Framework Programme, Social Innovation – Driving Force of Social Change – SI-DRIVE, Transformative Social Innovation Theory – TRANSIT and NET4SOCIETY, a network of National Contact Points in Horizon 2020. They are joined by two collaborative partners: Creating Economic Space for Social Innovation – CRESSI and Boosting the Impact of Social Innovation in Europe through Economic Underpinnings – SIMPACT.
