Opening up to an ERA of Social Innovation

November 27 - November 28

The European Union actively promotes social innovation and used it with success to reach policy goals. The time has come to develop the new narrative further. So, the conference will take stock of social innovation today, review new trends in this vast domain, set the scene for lively and stimulating discussions, and promote networking among innovators, entrepreneurs, and other value creators driven by a social ideal.

The conference aims to boost social innovation in Europe because social innovation is a good, cost-effective way to advance inclusive and wealth-creating public policies, by developing a new narrative and giving this new narrative the means to take root, grow, blossom and bear fruit.

Filippo Addarii and Fiorenza Lipparini will present Vision and Trends of Social Innovation for Europe
