Over the last years we’ve seen an impressive growth in projects and organisations using digital technologies such as open hardware, open data and crowdsourcing to tackle social challenges, with inspiring examples of scale and partnerships with public services.
As part of the EU-funded DSI4EU programme Nesta has been studying this growth and used the digitalsocial.eu site to map the organisations and projects working on digital social innovation across Europe.
What next for digital social innovation? – 16th May
This event is specifically designed for policy makers, funders and practitioners to share how we can make the most of the opportunities in digital social innovation through new approaches to funding, policy and partnerships with public services.
Themes we will discuss on the day include: lessons about growth and impact from the innovators themselves; building capacity in the non-profit sector to make the most of DSI; funding, investment and business models for DSI; and emerging city-based strategic approaches to DSI. We’ll also be looking at what emerging technologies mean for the future of DSI.
