Knowledge from Social Sciences Arts and Humanities research (SSHA) may be used in many different ways: it may support the adoption of new technologies, it may be integrated in technical innovations (e.g. in a software) but it may also drive changes in social practices. The latter is often called social innovation, now a hot innovation topic, globally. Social innovation and knowledge exchange from SSHA often go hand in hand. This session will explore what social innovation is about and how it is related to knowledge exchange, using examples to highlight its relevance in the Technology Transfer Office setting.
