Social Innovation

Social Innovation for the Common Good

Social innovation involves new strategies, ideas and organisations that meet social needs of all kinds. It flourishes when people from different backgrounds and experiences come together to produce new ideas and initiatives.

At Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU), we are working to deliver social benefit and impact through education, research and social innovation.

Our social innovation initiatives aim to provide solutions to real-world problems through applied research and development, working in partnership with business, the public and voluntary sectors.

GCU has established a rich social innovation culture by supporting research in civic participation, social policy, health and the environment. As a Changemaker Campus recognised by Ashoka U, we are advancing social innovation through our various outreach initiatives and incubator spaces across our campuses in Glasgow, London and New York.
