Marrying social and technological innovation: Towards the triple social, green and digital transformation

There is a growing movement doing away with the unhelpful separation of technological and social innovation and combining the two perspectives in interesting ways. For instance, the current discussion around Industry 5.0 focusing on a human-centric, resilient and sustainable industry, or the European sectoral skills alliances which integrate social and non-technological aspects in the work programme of Horizon Europe (e.g. Processes for Planet). There are also regional and European-funded projects where actors from across the quadruple helix (engineers, social scientists, policy makers, companies and entrepreneurs, citizens and end users) collaborate to address societal challenges.

Within this broad topic, we will together explore the following two issues during the webinar:

  1. the potential of social innovations within technological, industrial development processes;
  2. the potential of integrating shared agendas across actors to maximise the transformation of innovation ecosystems.
