(21 January 2016) – The Social Innovation Europe (SIE) platform, of which AEIDL is a partner, has just published a policy paper on “Social Innovation in Health and Social Care”.
Health and social care systems across the developed world are under strain. Established to deal with health problems of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, they now find themselves ill equipped to respond to twenty first century challenges.
“Social Innovation in Health and Social Care” brings together the findings of recent European Union funded research and practice in this area in order to highlight the kinds of social innovation currently being pursued in health and social care systems and assess the challenges associated with innovating.
It also outlines the role for government and policy makers in supporting attempts to drive through innovation in these sectors.
