SI e-mag

Welcome to the Transition eMag, where we explore the tools and methods for incubating social innovation which have evolved from our efforts in incubating social innovation projects across Europe. Transition is a consortium funded by the European Commission, tasked with scaling up 300 social innovations across Europe over 2.5 years. Based from this experience Transition has developed the Social Innovation Journey – our action format for social innovation incubation. Over the next four issues, we will explore the Social Innovation Journey in more depth, and give you case studies for how this tool has been used in practice.
