The Role of Inclusive Design in Making Social Innovation Happen
As a concept, social innovation has growing currency in society, government, academia and business. It manifests itself in many different ways in different contexts. Its meanings extend from public service and policy innovation to initiatives in assistive technology and to aspects of civic participation and creative entrepreneurship.
In all of these areas, design has a key role to play. It can make policy visible and participation possible.
In particular, inclusive design can deliver innovations of social value to communities and markets.
Details for submission of abstracts for paper and poster presentation, and information on the Include conference event can be found on the dedicate web page.
