Presentation of the learning report of UpdateDeutschland [in German]

The coalition agreement of the new German government has laid a strong foundation for a new cooperation between civil society, business, science, politics and administration. It is crucial for shaping the socio-ecological transformation of the coming years. How can we use Open Social Innovation to harness the creative and innovative power of society to solve social challenges? The new learning report on UpdateDeutschland offers answers to this question. UpdateDeutschland is the follow-up Open Social Innovation project of #WirvsVirus in 2021, initiated by ProjectTogether and endorsed by the German Chancellery.

This event will discuss how social innovation processes can be developed through mission-oriented cooperation between citizens, the state and business in the new German government. It will focus on insights derived from UpdateDeutschland and how we can continue to think about Open Social Innovation. Johanna Mair, Professor for Organization, Strategy and Leadership, and Thomas Gegenhuber, Professor of Management of Sociotechnical Transitions at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, will present the key findings from the learning report. Members of the UpdateDeutschland community will share their experiences and discuss the future of Open Social Innovation in Germany.
Please note that this event will be hosted in German.
