Creating Economic Space for Social Innovation - final conference
Speakers will cover a range of social innovation issues, including impact measurement, finance, social policy, theory-building.
The event brought together academics, practitioners and policymakers from a wide range of disciplines to focus on how interventions drawing on social innovation can address major economic, social and power imbalances and inequalities.
Speakers covered a range of social innovation issues, including impact measurement, finance, social policy, theory-building, all with a focus on enhancing the lives of the most marginalised and disempowered citizens through social innovation.
The event also included keynote addresses by economic sociologist Jens Beckert (Director of the Max Plank Institute for the Studies of Society - MPIfG), whose work has provided one of the main inspirations of the CrESSI-project, Frank Moulaert (Professor of Spatial Planning, Head of the Planning and Development Unit ASRO, Faculty of Engineering, KU Leuven, Belgium) and Jürgen Howaldt (Director Sozialforschungsstelle Dortmund Central scientific unit - University of Dortmund).
The video recording of the event will be available soon.
