  6. 6. Why do I need a model or a framework?-  Urban phenomenon is increasingly being much more complex entity. (i.e.: Masdar, Mulgan dixit)-  Need a framework to look into the social innovation processes at different scale.-  We need a systemic approach with interdependency of factors.-  Because Social Innovation could not be understood without Social Transformation.-  And Social Transformation means tensions and contradictions in the system (Harvey) Dr.  Igor  Calzada,  Ph.D.  //

  8. 8. Could we consider all the City-Regions with the same pattern and shape?•  No, actually it is why we need a open framework in order to identify particularities in their social innovative processes.•  Some City-Regions have tensions between certain systems.•  Hipothesys: The effectiveness of the framework (and thus the way the City-Region behaves) is going to be a consequence of the right balance in-between Systems.
