Focus

Innovation can be a risky endeavour. In order to assess if a new idea is feasible and workable, it is important to determine the possible organizational, political and societal risks. How are these risks to be determined and defined? What risks do we find acceptable and which risks do we not? We do know that risk definition and selection play an important role in the pursuit of social innovation in the public sector. However, empirical knowledge about the different kinds of risks (for whom) and how they are being assessed is not available. We aim to develop instruments which can support public managers, senior civil managers and politicians in dealing with these risks in a more systematic way. This could help users to improve the governance of risk in innovation programmes. In Work Package 4 'Risk definition and risk governance in social innovation' we will address this.
