Focus

We aim to improve the utilization of the knowledge that this research project will provide. Therefore, we will present relevant trends in a policy-oriented way, by translating our research outcomes in policy-relevant scenarios that will help policymakers to explore the potential as well as the relevant drivers and barriers to social innovation. Work package 7, 'Future trends and social innovation scenarios', will address this research challenge. 

A characteristic of an open systems approach to social innovation in the public sector is the idea that innovation processes are the result of a process of co-evolution in which various trends in different (sub-)environments ofthe public sector merge. Hence, it is important to understand how the knowledge that we have acquired in this project regarding the drivers and barriers to social innovation in the public sector can be linked to other general and specific developments and trends in, for instance, the political, the socioeconomic, the technological and the cultural environments. In order to strengthen the policy relevance of this trend analysis, we will develop a set of scenarios that refer to specific social innovation practices that might be relevant for the development of the public sector, given the challenges it faces. Moreover, it is important to take into account how the administrative structure and culture (and thus state traditions) will influence the likeliness of the social innovation scenarios.
