SOCIAL INNOVATION
MANUAL

The SIC Public Sector Innovation Blog is an online, open resource available for civil servants, policy makers, practitioners and researchers to expand their knowledge on how to manage co-creation in the public sector.

SIC, Social Innovation Community, is an EU project, funded to support the large community which is growing around Social Innovation, by creating spaces for them to meet and synergize and tools to strengthen their efforts.

The Public Sector Innovation Blog is a space for reflection and learning at the intersection between Social Innovation and Public Sector Innovation, developed in tight connection with the needs expressed by the stakeholders engaged in the SIC project. The blog is at the same time a repository of knowledge created throughout the project, and a tool that gives the opportunity to find information about new initiatives and events related with co-creation in the public sector and more broadly with public sector innovation.

The Public Sector Innovation Blog contains the following: posts and insights about public sector innovation initiatives and events; a selection of reports, presentations and articles produced within the SIC project; and case studies that describe initiatives and best practices across Europe at the intersection between social and public sector innovation.
