Social Innovation Community


About SIC
Social Innovation Community (SIC) is a Horizon 2020 funded project aiming to help deepen knowledge and capacity to act and grow social innovation and to support public and other decision-makers to work with social innovators more effectively in solving public challenges.

SIC started from the premise that we need more open innovation approaches to effectively address societal challenges. Over a three year period (2016- 2019) SIC has run a series of on- and offline activities – including practical place-based experimentation, learning, policy and research.

SIC is run by a consortium of 12 leading organisations across Europe. Partners are AEIDL, TU Dortmund University, University of Bologna, The Young Foundation, Nesta, Social Innovation Lab, The Dutch Research Institute for Transitions, Sinnergiak UPV/EHU, ZSI, The Danish Technological Institute, REVES and Social Innovation Exchange.
