Social innovation: integrating research into practice


Across all disciplines, research results from SNSF-funded projects find their way into practice and create connections between science and society. But what exactly do these connections look like?

The SNSF has commissioned a study from the Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI) in Vienna that investigated how much social innovation has resulted from SNSF-funded projects. For this, researchers who received funding from the SNSF as part of either the thematically open Project funding or under the Sinergia programme were surveyed. In total, more than 360 SNSF grant recipients took part in the study and answered questions about the multifaceted topic of social innovation.
