Social Innovation Challenge to Launch On 21 June in Dublin

Social Innovation Fund Ireland are delighted to announce their latest Social Innovation Challenge programme.

An open call for applications will be announced at the programme launch which will be held on Tuesday, 21 June in Dublin.

The programme is a new innovative solution that aims to utilise technology to solve critical social issues and is the first initiative of its kind to be announced in Ireland. The Social Innovation Challenge programme will ensure the smartest use of monies designed to positively impact on tens of thousands of lives. Following a detailed application process, successful projects will undertake a five-month programme period that will provide them with both financial and non-financial support, to help encourage their growth and success.

The programme offers a great opportunity to social enterprises, charities and other non-profit organisations to demonstrate their solutions, which should aim to create a measurable, positive social impact and be scalable throughout Ireland. In addition, successful participants should indicate how technology can be leveraged to solve major social issues, for example demonstrating the power of the web, open internet platforms, and assistive technologies.

Turning Social Innovation on its head!!
