How might we accelerate breakthrough solutions to grand challenges?
Over the past 5 years the Social R&D Community, along with funders and policymakers, have begun to craft an ecosystem that unlocks R&D for the social sector.
Why? It has been demonstrated across many different sectors that strong R&D ecosystems generate innovations of high quality and at a high frequency (i.e. new policy, process, program, service, product-classes that elevate or replace existing models).
Why shouldn’t we expect the same in the social sector?
If you are…
- a service provider looking to create breakthrough solutions;
- a foundation looking to build innovation capacity internally and across your grantee network;
- a policymaker trying to arm the sector with innovation supports; or
- an R&D practitioner from another sector, contact us.
Let’s work together to create the conditions for social R&D to thrive in Canada!
