Social innovations at Lund University
The Social Innovation theme at the Pufendorf IAS is studying social innovations at Lund University. The researchers are now looking for examples of experiences and implemented and ongoing activities in this area – via a short survey form.
- We think the University can play a considerably larger role in promoting innovations that aim to address general societal problems. But we need the help of teaching staff, researchers and students to map what is being done today, and start thinking about how we can facilitate future research and initiatives in the area, says the theme’s coordinator, Bo Göransson.
He feels that innovative thinking in areas such as social exclusion, unemployment, sustainability and criminality could benefit large sections of the population and counteract inequalities in society, as well as help the University meet the challenges that society faces.
