COST Action «Multidisciplinary Innovation for Social Change»

In a complex and constantly changing world knowledge alliances between higher education institutions (HEIs) and enterprises which aim to foster innovation, entrepreneurship, creativity, employability, knowledge exchange and/or multi-disciplinary teaching and learning are becoming increasingly necessary and relevant.


The aim of this action is to demonstrate, through the adoption of multi-disciplinary innovation (MDI) methods, how we can respond to social problems with a design-led approach, which has a problem-oriented ethos, supporting positive social change and the development of international public policy discourse. It will be achieved through the establishment of a Pan-European Public Sector Innovation (ePSI) lab.
