4th Transfer Webinar: Participation and stakeholders’ involvement in social innovation process

Posted Posted in News, Webinar

September 28th, 2021, 11:00 – 13:30 (CET)

The webinar will be the occasion to present and discuss activities developed in the framework of +Resilient that are supporting participation and stakeholder’s involvement in the social innovation process.

A frequently quoted definition from Open Book on Social Innovation describes social innovations as:

New ideas (products, services and models) that simultaneously meet social needs and create new social relationships or collaborations.

In other words, they are innovations that are both good for society and enhance society’s capacity to act.

(Murray et al., 2010)

Participation and stakeholders’ involvement plays an essential role in social innovation. Engaging people and stakeholder’s involvement and cooperation in developing new ways of tackling social challenges that we are facing in our communities leads to more effective and more legitimate solutions accepted by the community. There are some key reasons why participation and stakeholder’s involvement is important for social innovation. Engagement:

  • enables a better understanding of social needs

  • enables diversity and provides a channel for new solutions

  • can increase the legitimacy of the solutions (projects/ decisions)

  • enables responses to complex challenges that require varied and unexpected sources offering diverse and new perspectives.

Evaluation of the Resilient + pilot actions showed an important methodological dimension of the pilot actions and that is that most partners have largely used participative methods at each step of the pilot action implementation. This is seen as one of the impacts of the Resilient project, which emphasized, from the beginning, the importance of participative process in social innovation dynamics and process.

The aim of this webinar is to share experiences, tools and lessons learned that could be used to boost greater participation and stakeholders’ involvement in the social innovation process.

Social entrepreneurship and social responsibility is a very broad theme that can be addressed in many different ways. The approach adopted for the 4th Webinar was to focus on a specific topic – Business models for social entrepreneurship.

This topic is deemed to be useful both for public and private bodies providing support to social entrepreneurs and also for social organisations (profit and non-profit), therefore covering the range of possible interests of +Resilient partners and stakeholders.

In the first session of the Webinar our invited speaker, Boris Golob, will introduce the Business Model Methodology using an approach based on a modified version of the Business Model Canvas, to include social and environmental perspectives.

In the second session of the Webinar the participants will have the opportunity for practical work in groups, addressing issues such as: How to create and screen a social business idea? How to integrate financial, social and environmental aspects in the analysis? How to review/rethink the business model of a social organisation in operation?

The participation in the webinar is open, but registration is required. The agenda is available here.

Registration for this webinar is now closed.
