“Social innovations are new ideas that meet social needs, create social relationships and form new collaborations”.
STIMMULI is focused on action-based research with the aim to advance the field of social innovation and inspire people and organisations to design and launch initiatives with social value and growth potential.
We believe that some of the biggest challenges of our societies can be solved by fostering social innovation to achieve impact and scale and by engaging the creativity and resources of all sectors. Our ultimate goal is to support systemic change and allow social innovations to flourish.
In this framework, we design and implement research and innovation projects that on the one hand help businesses, charities, and governments to achieve their social impact objectives and on the other contribute to a more sustainable and socially conscious future. We work on projects focused on various sectors such as: education, environmental protection, migration, gender equality, social inclusion, cultural heritage etc. Our approach employs a mix of cross-disciplinary research to advance the theory and practice of social innovation and produce new knowledge that can be useful for academics, policy makers and practitioners.
