Redefining social entrepreneurship in digital societies

Can Europe solve societal challenges through the digitalization of social policy? Are social entrepreneurs, policy-makers and citizens ready for the digital social economy? Which digitalization policies, strategies, economic incentives and educational capabilities are needed? What are the novel elements of governance and new decentralised ownership models brought by open-source, AI, IoT, Big Data, DLT? The AdWisers was invited to join other leading thinkers in a high-level policy co-creation workshop to debate some of the most fascinating and significant challenges of our times. Our experience, vision and recommendations are part of an outstanding REPORT for the European Commission prepared by: Q-Plan International, United Nations University, University of Manchester, Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation & Technology.
