Welcome

This conference brings together the Trans-Atlantic Platform Social Innovation grant holders and their cooperation partners (stakeholders), other Social Innovation experts, and Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) funding agency representatives in an online event.

The conference aims to

  • explore outcomes of the 10 T-AP Social Innovation projects funded,
  • share knowledge on how to implement innovative research concepts to meet social needs,
  • develop a common understanding of pivotal issues in collaborative Social Innovation research,
  • consider the impact and sustainability of Social Innovation projects in the humanities and social sciences,
  • make recommendations specifically geared to future multinational Social Innovation research demands,
  • give feedback for Funding Agencies that could help to improve the process for future T-AP calls.

The T-AP Social Innovation projects both add to understandings of social innovation and deliver social innovation(s) through new research. The focus of the conference is on what Social Innovation research can learn from multinational collaboration by

  • comparing social challenges faced on both sides of the Atlantic,
  • learning from the experiences of multisectoral collaboration for Social Innovation practiced on both sides of the Atlantic,
  • applying and adapting approaches from one locale to another,
  • generalizing and/or scaling-up of local experiences.
