Innovation from a socio-cultural perspective

Innovations are ‚changes or novelties

of rites, techniques, customs, manners

and mores.‘

Horace Kallen, 1949: Innovation, in: Encyklopedia of the Social Sciences; Vol. 8; pp. 58ff.

slide4

Approaches to innovation

‘Innovation is not just an economic mechanism or a technical process. It is above all a socialphenomenon.

Through it, individuals and societies express their creativity, needs and desires.

By its purpose, its effects or its methods, innovation is thus intimately involved in the social conditions in which it is produced.’

European Commission, 1995: Green Paper on Innovation

http://europa.eu/documents/comm/green_papers/pdf/com95_688_en.pdf

slide5

All innovations are socially relevant

Any innovation emerges from a certain background in society,

and has impact on social entities.

Many innovations originate from technology – and occur in business.

Yet besides economic outcomes they bear social components as well.

Social innovations may as well be stimulated by technology.

They occur in all sectors of society (private, public, civil society).

Their prime outcome is changing social practices, yet there may be economic implications as well.

slide6

An analytical definition of „Social Innovation“*)

‚Social innovations are new practices

for resolving societal challenges,

which are adopted and utilized

by the individuals, social groups and organizations concerned.‘

*)Zentrum für Soziale Innovation, 2012:

„All innovations are socially relevant“ – ZSI-Discussion Paper 13, p. 2.
