Social Science Innovation Series
How will innovation in social science help find solutions to the toughest challenges in the society? What are the possible structures and paths to apply such innovation from academia research to improve cultural, financial, environmental, social sustainability while achieving social impact and perhaps financial return?
A three-part Social Science Innovation Series in the spring semester of 2022 will engage in the exploration of opportunities offered in this thought-provoking field.
- On the first session, we will hear from Professor Peter Enns, the Robert S. Harrison Director of the Cornell Center for Social Sciences and co-founder of Verasight, in a virtual fire chat about the experience and the lessons learned about applying his research in real world for social and business impact.
- On the second session, invited pioneers in social innovation will share their perspectives and vision in how future will shape up in this exciting direction.
- The third and last session will be an in-person community gathering to connect with likely-minded colleagues and learn how to start your journey toward Social Innovations.
