We are setting up a network of organisations that use the Internet for the social good. Explore 1007 organisations with 633 collaborative research and innovation projects. “Digital Social Innovation is a type of collaborative innovation in which innovators, users and communities co-create knowledge and solutions for a wide range of social needs exploiting the network effect of the Internet.” This site is part of an EU wide research project on Digital Social Innovation (DSI). The European Commission has funded the project to build a living map of organisations that use digital technologies for the social good. Today the growth of digital services has resulted in an imbalance between the dramatic scale and reach of commercial Internet models and the relative weakness of collaborative alternatives, mainly ﬁlling marginal niches and unable to gather a critical mass of users and exploit the network effect. However, The DSI communities play a key role to enable grassroots innovation that leverage the power of the Internet. That’s why the European Commission is creating new research programmes, funding instruments and policies to support grassroots social innovators and encourage citizens participation within the framework of the Digital Agenda for Europe.
