What we do

We aim to foster interdisciplinary research and develop an ecosystem to work with local communities and international actors to support, participate and feature projects related to social innovation and sustainability.

Our work builds our expertise in qualitative methods to develop strong theoretical contributions and contribute meaningfully to the current academic conversations by developing a rich theoretical understanding of collaboration for social innovation. In particular, our research focuses on:

  • Cross-sector collaboration for social innovation
  • Open social innovation
  • Design and co-creation
