With the aim to go beyond theoretical models, small-scale stakeholder experiments will involve social
innovation stakeholders in challenging and further developing the
Go to SI Behaviour Scenariossimulation models,
ensuring that they are grounded in reality and reflect diverse needs, perspectives and ideas.
The above audience is invited to participate in an initial consultation workshop to identify drivers and barriers of social innovation
in tackling marginalised and vulnerable groups' needs. The expected outcome is an overview of economic, political and social
drivers and barriers of social innovation, to be fed into the
Go to SI Behaviour Scenariossimulation model and
Go to Drivers & Barriersdevelopment of concepts.
In the subsequent two stakeholder experiments participants will challenge the model by «experimenting» with its
applicability: The experiments will place experts in the role of decision makers able to shape drivers and address
barriers. Based on the Delphi method, the experiments will run in several rounds thus allowing
the experts to understand each other's perspectives on the drivers and barriers. The experts
will then adjust their views in response to these insights and to the other experts comments.
By improving feedback during several discussion loops, the experiments will consider multiple
relevant dimensions of reality and applicability. In addition, the second round of experiments
will be utilised to collect feedback from the participants on the developed social innovation
Go to SI Indicator Setsindicator sets.
Social innovation LivingLabs (e.g. ENoLL members) will be used to increase the experiments significantly.
The outcomes of the experiments will be fed into the simulation iterations and scenario building.
The experts are expected to contribute knowledge and insights, and as «boundary spanners»
have the potential to influence future developments in the field of action.
