The CrESSI (Creating Economic Space for Social Innovation) project is coming to an end and a final event has been scheduled for 26th January 2018 in Oxford. The conference will showcase major theoretical and practical findings on the economic underpinnings of social innovation in the European Union, based on an interdisciplinary framework.
Speakers will cover a range of social innovation issues, including impact measurement, finance, social policy, theory-building, all with a focus on enhancing the lives of the most marginalised and disempowered citizens through social innovation.
The main goal of the event is to bring together academics, practitioners and policy makers from a wide range of disciplines to focus on how interventions drawing on social innovation can address major economic, social and power imbalances and inequalities.
The event will also include a keynote by economic sociologist Jens Beckert (Director of the MPIfG), whose work has provided one of the main inspirations of the CrESSI-project, Frank Moulaert (Professor of Spatial Planning, Head of the Planning and Development Unit ASRO, Faculty of Engineering, KU Leuven, Belgium) and Jürgen Howaldt (Director Sozialforschungsstelle Dortmund Central scientific unit - University of Dortmund).
The conference is a full-day event being curated by Said Business School University of Oxford, together with CrESSI partners (University of Greifswald, University of Heidelberg, Delft University, Austrian Institute of Technology, University of Pavia, University of Tampere and Hungarian Academy of Science).
