D4.3 Report on the key learnings of the five SIC Summer Schools between 2016 and 2018

Section: Work and Equal Opportunities

The overall aim of the SIC Summer Schools (SUMSIC) was to co-produce with and to share knowledge among researchers, social innovators, citizens, decision makers, representatives of municipalities, and policy makers from different networks by reflecting on local social challenges. To create a balanced mix of theory and practice in the learning settings the summer schools provided top-class lectures, presented good practice examples and conducted workshop sessions. The workshop sessions gave participants the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and to develop solutions on existing social challenges from the respective city or region. Representatives of local organisations together with the SIC project partners adapted the SUMSIC concept according to relevant local social challenges. Summer schools thus managed to generate value not just for participants but also to the cities and regions hosting them, aiming to create practical evidence of the potential of social innovation learning.
