The first fully online management training programme in Europe to focus exclusively on social innovation, the project aims to develop quality training for businesses, NGOs, innovation spaces and aspiring social entrepreneurs on the theory and practice behind social innovation to enable them to carry out their own projects with a social impact. Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, the Social Innovation Academy is coordinated from Luxembourg by Limitless and carried out in collaboration with experienced partners from Greece, Poland, Spain and Slovenia.
Attendees will have the chance to learn more about the project through presentations and panel discussions. “We’re excited to present the preliminary project results, including the conclusions of our research on core social innovation skills, which were published by the London School of Economics, as well as the beta version of the Social Innovation Academy,” says Sikora. Running until August 2019, the project is now in the testing phase and offers free-of-charge access to the online learning platform. Following their own areas of interest, users are led through a series of modules on the theoretical and practical aspects of social innovation with the opportunity to take a self-assessment on completion.
