Join www.digitalsocial.eu!

NESTA is leading a pioneering research on Digital Social Innovation (DSI) 
funded by the European Commission. Insights from the research will help 
formulating advices to the  Commission on how best support grassroots 
innovation to grow and increase its impact. In the context of the research, the 
definition of DSI is ‘a type of social and collaborative innovation in which 
innovators, users and communities collaborate using digital technologies to 
co-create knowledge and solutions for a wide range of social needs and at a 
scale that was unimaginable before the rise of the Internet’.

At the heart of the research is www.digitalsocial.eu, a dynamic and 
crowdsourced map of organisations that work on digital social innovation. The 
main purposes of the DSI site are:

1.      Learn about DSI and get inspired. Showing citizens and the general 
audience the potential of DSI, being able to explore projects and organisations 
in the field, learn about new technology trends, learn about emerging digital 
social innovation areas, explore case studies examples

2.      Discover funding opportunities and support you can get from investors, 
incubators, accelerators or policy makers. Funders can also discover great DSI 
projects on the living map.

3.      Find potential partners to collaborate with, interact and discover 
other interesting DSI projects

4.      Enhance and visualise your network of collaborators and raise your 

By registering on digitalsocial.eu and mapping your organisation and your 
projects, you will have the opportunity to join a network of potential 
collaborators and showcase your work to funders of DSI and policy makers, 
including the European Commission. The map is rapidly evolving – to date more 
than 770 organisations have crowdmapped their projects and collaborative 
networks. However, we are sure there is still lots great work happening DSI 
around Europe that still isn’t mapped.

Therefore, if you work on digital social innovation I would be grateful if you 
could map your organisation and your projects. It will only take 5 minutes. You 
can read more about the research and the work to date in these two interim 
study reports and by following @Digi_Si on twitter. If you have any other 
question about the research send an email to cont...@digtalsocial.eu.
