Citizen-driven innovation

In partnership with Telefonica, this project led to the creation of a platform for the development of citizen-driven digital social innovation initiatives aimed at fostering positive impact in Catalunya. The goal was to map the landscape of local social entrepreneurship and to provide greater visibility, skills and relationships to citizen-led initiatives that make intensive use of ICT to address human and social needs. The process incubated and catalysed over a hundred initiatives by providing media exposure, knowledge transfer, mutual advice, professional advice and business relationship and opportunities. The initiative was then replicated in the Basque Country under the name Lan Irekia.
