About this Event

We are very excited to invite you to the first event of the Social Innovation Academy project that will take place on Thursday, January 24th 2019, at the new co-working space The Office City, 29, Boulevard Prince Henri L1724 Luxembourg.

Social Innovation Academy will be the first European, fully online programme focusing exclusively on social innovation. The project, launched and lead by our team at Limitless from Luxembourg, and executed by several partners from across Europe (including Harvard Business Review Poland and Found.ation from Greece), will finish in August 2019. We are funded by the European Commission, under the Erasmus+ programme for professional education and training.

What is social innovation? In short, any innovation that is social in its ends or in its means. In practice, social innovations take form of social enterprises, corporate innovation projects, non-profit projects, public sector programs, grass-root movements or community projects.

On January 24th, we will gather for the first time together with our Advisors, Friends and other amazing social innovators and social innovation experts and enthusiasts from Luxembourg. We will present preliminary results of the project, most notably the conclusions of research on core social innovation skills (we’re proud to share they have been published by London School of Economics) as well as our analysis of the social innovation training landscape in Europe. Most importantly, we will reveal the beta version of the Academy itself, officially launching the testing phase of the project. It will be a great opportunity to get to know with all the amazing panelists and guests. As this is a by-invitation event, everyone in the room will be relevant to the topic and we hope you will be able to make great connections during the drinks that will follow.
