What's SINOVPROC?

 

A renewed interest on the concept of social innovation in the academic literature has emerged, as a way to address the Grand Challenges of the 21st century. However, two major gaps are found in the literature. Firstly, there is a lack of research about the process dimension of social innovation and, particularly, about the role universities might play in that process. Although universities? activities around technology transfer are is well understood, other kinds of university knowledge contributions to drive wider societal development are less well understood. A second gap is the shortage of academic research about the metrics best suited to assess the impact of social innovation initiatives. The two overarching goals of this research project are: to propose a conceptual framework to understand how the process of social innovation works; and to propose a methodological framework to identify metrics/indicators that allow measuring the impact of social innovation initiatives/projects.
