Social Innovation Community
SIC is the community for social innovators across Europe. A range of social innovation organizations and networks have emerged in Europe in recent years to tackle the increasingly complex and interrelated challenges we face today. Yet too often this activity is limited to a small but active few, and is not well-coordinated or visible enough to achieve critical mass. Taking areas of known social innovation activity – which we’ve organized around ‘social innovation networks’ – SIC strengthens, connects and grows existing social innovation communities – including public sector innovation, climate innovation, academia led innovation, social economy actors and more. Starting from the premise that we need more open innovation approaches to effectively address societal challenges, SIC is running a series of on- and offline activities – including practical place-based experiments, learning, policy, and research.
