Urenio Watch Watch: Innovation ecosystems

Digital Social Innovation

dsiDigital technologies and the Internet play an increasingly important role in how social innovation happens. NESTA calls this phenomenon digital social innovation (DSI) and created a network map of organisations that use digital technologies for social innovation.

The European Commission has funded the project led by Nesta. As part of the project, NESTA and project partners, have been looking across Europe, and beyond, to find out more about how people are using digital technology to make a social impact. They are inviting people involved in creating these new social innovations to map their activities over at our open data community map www.digitalsocial.eu.


NESTA highlights our top 11 DSI trends to watch:

  • Crowdmapping
  • Crowdsourcing
  • Networks that sense
  • Open hardware
  • Data: Big, Open and Linked
  • Open source code sharing
  • Open Licensing
  • Citizen science
  • Learn for free
  • Collaboration Spaces
