 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The European Commission’s Innovation Union strategy clearly places innovation at the centre of the policy agenda for meeting social challenges affecting Europe and its Member States. The field of social innovation is developing rapidly all over the world, with new institutions, methods and activities. However, at present the ability for Europe to coordinate and galvanise its undoubted potential across Member States is limited by the lack of the systematic and sophisticated infrastructures of support available to other fields. These include the absence of:

- reliable metrics for assessing the effectiveness and impact of innovations, and of policies and programmes to promote social innovation; - effective capital market instruments and financial supports; - suitable regulatory and policy frameworks for ensuring scale and impact - a codified and widely understood set of methods; - networks and other vehicles to spread methods, learning and skills; - co-ordinated leadership; and - enabling cultures.

This consortium of leading European research institutions and global experts in social innovation has designed a programme of work to build the theoretical, empirical and policy foundations for building social innovation in Europe. The objective of this research programme is to prepare the way for developing the tools, methods and policies which will be part of the EU strategy for social innovation. Its purpose is to strengthen the foundations for other researchers, policy-makers and practitioners so that they can analyse and plan with greater confidence. As such the research programme will map the field, reviewing theories, models, methods and identifying gaps in existing practices and policies, as well as pointing towards the priorities for future strategies.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Measuring the effects of innovation in social systems and concepts will help create positive social change that will benefit European society.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Major world challenges such as unemployment, climate change, a rapidly ageing population and decreased public spending are prompting policymakers to propose new approaches for social innovation. This requires effective impact assessment of new solutions, as well as effective financial support systems and capital market instruments.

'The theoretical, empirical and policy foundations for building social innovation in Europe' (http://www.tepsie.eu (TEPSIE)) is an EU-funded project working on strengthening social innovation to encourage social change. In order to achieve this ambitious aim, the project team is developing ways to assess the effectiveness of innovations, policies and programmes that promote social innovation. It is supporting policymakers and researchers to plan and implement social innovation more effectively by reviewing theories, identifying gaps and highlighting priorities in the field.

Apart from conducting a comprehensive overview of social innovation and measuring its effectiveness, the project team is working on pinpointing and removing barriers to social innovation. It is also exploring the generation of capital flows required for social innovation and engaging the public in discussions on the topic.

TEPSIE has already built a dynamic online research community in addition to launching a project website and a research website. It is currently exploiting social media platforms as tools for disseminating its messages and organising events such as workshops and conferences on social innovation. Articles and policy papers are also being published on the subject along with vigorous dissemination efforts to reach stakeholders.

Building on the latest research, the project team plans to continue providing its results to decision makers. It will determine what works in terms of social innovation, in addition to exploring how to grow and scale the concept. From enabling a better social system and a more streamlined public sector, the project is expected to encourage the creation of a better civil society across the EU.
