  3. 3. Social Innovations• What is social innovation? – By the peolpe – For the people – With the people• Searching for something in the midlle of „catch all” and „elitis approach”.• Gdynia meeting and its possible formative role
  4. 4. Obstacles for social innovations in Poland• Low level of social capital (particularly - “linking” dimension)• High level of individualism - smart educated people not translated to smart institutions• State “bulimia” + regulatory approach to public policy, adversarial concept of state and civil society• Lack of evidence base policy• Market proselytism – deep believe that competition is the main source of innovation and optimal configuration of needs and solutions• Innovation subordinated to institutional domains of academia and enterprises - not so much to governance and social processes• Weak meta competences – for example “how to learn on own mistakes”, “how to learn from others”
  5. 5. • Lack of proper "distillations" of good practices – problem of self-selection of innovation - lack of proper validation / fake evaluations• Lack of scaling and convergence mechanism for good practices• Lack of institutional space for social innovation – incubators, hubs, centers for excellence etc.• Patenting, patenting, patenting – lack of culture of „open code”• Outgrown technical infrastructures of information and training (ESF type)• Not enough „structural holes” – bridging sectors, industries and groups
  6. 6. Funding for social innovations Problems with public funding – Lack of acceptance for risk – Too big chunks – Irrelevant assessment process – Lack of validation – Poor mainstreaming of products – ESF solution or problem Para banking institutions Weak private funding (traditional model philanthropy and mostly shallow and instrumental practices of CSR)•
  7. 7. Institutional backbone• Technology clusters• Private sector• Academia• NGOs• Public administration• EU „generated” public infrastrucure
  8. 8. Hopes• Strategy of development of social and creative capital• New Ministry of Administration and Digitalization (last week)• Necessity of respond to the crisis -> sclerosis or innovation
