The second meeting of the ITSSOIN Consortium in Copenhagen was very successful.
Insights resulting from the research steps conducted in the first months of the project were presented and discussed.
On the basis of literature reviews and theoretical considerations the Consortium substantiated that the analysis of media perception and policy frameworks with reference to the third sector’s role in generating social innovations is a new approach to both of these research fields.
A constructive discussion on these initial results revealed that the media’s perception of the third sector and the policy frameworks strongly differ across the various EU countries.
The present results will determine the selection and the detailed analysis of empirical cases of social innovation in different empirical fields examined throughout the project.
More fine-grained results will be available on our homepage in 2015.
