Social innovation

P. 1-6.

Social innovation is the application of new solutions to social problems in areas such as welfare, health, education, youth unemployment, adaptation of migrants, and territorial integration of regions. Social innovations allow non-profits and other organizations to meet needs of society more effectively than existing options, respond to social challenges, offer new solutions to social problems, develop social interaction and create alliances. There are different types of social innovations. Most commonly the distinction is between product or service innovations and process innovations.
