The Socio-Economic Innovation flagship explores innovative approaches to community and regional development that cross ‘social’ and ‘economic’ domains to generate multiple outcomes for communities and regions.
IRD Projects and PhD research within the Socio-Economic Innovation flagship focus on the following themes:
This research aims to document, evaluate and understand local enterprise initiatives in and beyond market settings that empower individuals, communities and regions. We work closely with practitioners to design, accompany, and evaluate innovative projects, and to explore their broader implications for policy and practice.
This research focuses on meeting regional development knowledge needs to encourage more innovative policy and practice. The Development Knowledge theme aims to develop tools, resources and approaches to help practitioners and policy makers tackle entrenched issues in new ways.
