London by @Doug88888 - Found on Flickr (Creative Commons:  BY-NC-SA 2.0)The global field of social innovation is gathering momentum. Yet despite thriving practitioner networks and a real commitment from policymakers and foundations to support social innovation, empirical and theoretical knowledge of social innovation remains uneven. Even though there are many organisations working in this field, much more could be done to bring these networks, organisations and individuals together.

This is the aim of Social Frontiers, to build and strengthen the community of social innovation researchers. By bringing together a multiplicity of voices and perspectives on social innovation we hope to strengthen and extend existing networks, share learning, promote collaboration, identify gaps in knowledge and work together to build a common research agenda for the next decade.

A call was launched for papers in February and our distinguished panel selected 27 papers which will be presented at the conference.
