  • Some reflextions on the governance of social innovation in Europe
    • Authors: Ana Gómez Narváez
      Abstract: The European Parliament’s regulation for the EU programme for Employment and Social Innovation is a step towards the governance of social innovation, amid the reigning confusion about its role vis-à-vis the State’s role in our post-crisis scenario, where citizens are finding themselves in increasingly vulnerable positions, and where austerity measures have created business ‘opportunities’ in social sectors such as education and healthcare.   The regulation stresses that both the ends and means of Social Innovation are social, alleviating the effects of unsustainable economic development. The governance of social innovation would necessarily subordinate economic to social benefits, and could foster the creation of relational capital, where social innovation could even function as an alternative intermediary between the State and its citizens, sidestepping the market, although it seems unlikely. The regulation includes notions from platforms against poverty giving political hope, but it is through our socially attuned collective intelligence that hope for the future can be found.

  • Critical social innovation in the smart city era for a city-regional
           european horizon 2020
    • Authors: Igor Calzada
      Abstract: In 2020, in the new EU strategic horizon[1] that is opening at present, the place should matter more than ever when it refers to territories that are envisaged from the Social Innovation paradigm (Moulaert[2], Mulgan[3] and Morgan[4]). Nevertheless, how will the suggested H2020 strategy based on Smart City and Communities[5], contribute and implement the so-called Social Innovation; facing realistic, economic and politic-driven issues in an increasingly territorially heterogeneous EU current context? This article aims to shed some light on the Critical Social Innovation (CSI) challenges from a constructive position.
