Nesta announces Call for Papers on Social Innovation

18 FEBRUARY 2013

Nesta, the leading British innovation foundation, has published an open call for proposals that aim to challenge conventional wisdom and identify and address knowledge gaps to deepen our knowledge of social innovation.

NESTA logoNesta has issued an open call for abstracts for research papers that go beyond the current state of knowledge on social innovation, identify and address gaps in knowledge and generate hypotheses that can shape future research agendas in this field.
The organisation is looking for proposals that push the boundaries of current knowledge, look to other disciplines for insight, develop a useful evidence base for social innovation that can inform policy and form new hypotheses to set a collective research agenda for the next ten years.
