We define social innovation strategies tailored to the specific social contexts of research.
Societal challenges call for innovation. Yet innovation cannot take place without engaging and talking with people.
The co-design and co-creation of research together with end-users helps shape innovation based on real needs and foster social acceptance as a prerequisite for innovation and progress.
The understanding of social impacts of research on society and the development of engagement-supporting methods and tools are a key success factor for social innovation.
We guide and support researchers and innovators in the implementation of these strategies.
«Innovation survives only when people believe in their own ideas»
