Scientists from all over the world will be discussing new developments in social movements, non-profit companies, and the social economy at the International Social Innovation Research Conference.

 

This year, the tenth annual conference will be held in Germany for the first time, in Heidelberg, and tackles the theme of “Bridging Social and Business Innovation”. New products, services, and models will be presented that improve social relations and promote human potential. Theoretical approaches and the connotation of the word “innovation” often only refer to technical innovation; analytical, conceptual, and theoretical contributions to social innovation have rarely been included to date. Social innovations are usually seen only as an alternative to economic, profit-oriented innovations, all of which are intended to solve social challenges. The aim of the conference is to combine both approaches and to significantly improve research into social innovation.

Participants meet several times a day in plenary sessions to discuss methodological and empirical contributions from various disciplines and topics of general interest will also be presented. Based on the growing number of visitors to previous events, the organisers expect around two hundred participants from various countries, from experts in the field to political decision-makers. A three-day conference programme awaits visitors, inviting them to address issues such as the future of social innovation in the areas of sustainability, investment, health, and education as well as their financing. Registration for participation is now open on the event’s official website.
