Atlas of Social Innovation online

19. Jan 2018

The new Atlas of Social Innovation provides insights into the current trends of Social Innovation across the globe.

The Atlas of Social Innovation gathers leading experts to deliver new intelligence on the diversity of Social Innovation and complements this insight with the results of the international research project SI-DRIVE. The articles reflect the diversity, broadness and usability of Social Innovation in different parts of the world, represent the variety of actors and their interaction and explore the systemic character and concept of Social Innovation. They provide insights into the current trends of Social Innovation research, thereby building up a knowledge repository for a growing community of practitioners, policy makers and researchers. The Atlas of Social Innovation ultimately opens up new avenues to unfold the potential of Social Innovation in the search for new social practices enhancing a secure future evolution and allow people to live a richer and more fulfilled human life.
