Public Private Collaborations: Journeys in Scaling-up Social Innovation

Social innovations are activities, which develop and implement new ideas that meet social needs, enhance cross-sectoral collaboration and form new connections. To scale these up there is a need for agile, connected, and engaged public- and private actors that channel financial and non-financial resources towards positive social impact at the national and European level. During this session, we will discuss how the upcoming national- and European Social Innovation Competence Centres, innovative public-private collaborations and financial mechanisms, contribute to supporting social innovation and the transformation of government-systems towards a stronger multidisciplinary approach to policy-making.

Experts from the European Commission, Brabant regional authority and the European Investment Fund will engage the audience on a lively conversation about the role of governments and EU public institutions in boosting innovation and transformation in society.
