Master in Social Innovation for Sustainable Development

31st August 2020 - 1st September 2020


We are pleased to inform you that applications for the edition 2020-21 of the Master in Social Innovation for Sustainable Development are now open.

With a global faculty and participants, the master will challenge your current beliefs and notions of social innovation with a view to developing a new understanding of its principles and tools. Global development trends show that problems of the Covid 19 crisis, social exclusion, youth unemployment, migration, climate change, and ageing society are escalating. By recognizing how social innovation goes beyond technology and current beliefs, you will explore the implication of different models. Participants will acquire tools and techniques to anticipate change and respond to complex situations in their respective relevant fields. A crucial role for social innovators and entrepreneurs in the implementation of the 2030 SDGs is expected in the medium term. Government agencies are encouraged to seek out “the best social innovations” in their programmes. Entrepreneurs of tomorrow are requested to use their new models to achieve results and scale their services, including public-private partnerships.

The Master duration is of 1 year with 6 weeks* of face-to-face learning activities taking place in Turin, Italy.
