Social Innovation

"Healthy society" is a topic and challenges often undertaken as part of social innovation

The main goal of innovation in the area of ​​a healthy society is usually to improve the quality of life, meet the needs or solve problems of the elderly or disabled.

A feature of these innovations is that they are based mainly on ideas that improve imperfect reality, combine small solutions into larger, more effective ones, use ingenuity and commitment across many professions, generations and experiences.

By definition, social innovations are created through cooperation. Thanks to the programs supporting social innovators, new, valuable projects are created, which, however, are not talked about enough and implemented too little. Their use is limited mainly due to lack of information or lack of funds. On the other hand, there are needs in many places.

At #LSOS19, we open our stage for a new Social Innovation thematic path to present programs that support social innovation and its results.
