Urenio Watch Watch: Innovation Strategies

Paper: What governments can do to support social innovation

In this new paper, Geoff Mulgan, Chief Executive of Nesta,  summarises some of the key policy tools that national governments have used or considered, and which together provide a menu of options for any future national governments that want to develop a more comprehensive strategy for social innovation.  The tools are divided in ten categories: Laws and Regulations, New Funding Sources, New Uses of Money, Social Innovation and Public Services, Growing Capacity, Empowerment and Democracy, Social Innovation and Science R&D, Social Innovation and Problem Solving, New Metrics, and Structures.
