While social innovation is not a new concept, as a field of practice it has matured. Social innovation approaches are designed to address complex challenges, and this capacity has increasingly attracted the attention of policy, education and research stakeholders. Global challenges and complex, wicked social problems require solutions that recognize the multiple layers of an issue and work on its root causes. As such, they require social systems innovation and the ecosystems across which these solutions are deployed need the capacity to support social innovation processes from start to finish. This much is increasingly clear.
What Skills and Knowledge do scientists require to promote an ideal of scientific integrity that is compatible with increased trust and social acceptance of science? What do we know about current practices of university-based scientists when it comes to participating in policy processes?
Inventory of Community-Focused Knowledge Mobilization Practices in the Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts.
Knowledge mobilization in the social sciences, humanities and arts (SSHA) is the subject of a growing body of literature and policy discussions. “Inventory of Models and Practices in Community Focused Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts” examines the current state of community-focused SSHA knowledge mobilization, understood broadly enough to include all aspects of scholarly activity that rests on direct interactions with community partners, including but not limited to nonprofits and municipal government.

The Conversation Canada: Social sciences and humanities degrees can equip people for vocations that require high levels of adaptability and the capacity for continuous learning. But what is missing?
Le Forum réunira des intervenants en recherche sociale et innovation de tous les secteurs dans le but d’explorer l’harmonisation des politiques et des pratiques qui misent sur la formation axée sur les répercussion et la mobilisation des connaissances en sciences sociales, sciences humaines et les arts (SSSHA) pour favoriser l’innovation et renforcer les capacités dans les secteurs sociaux et municipaux.
Misalignment between employers’ perceived skills needs and SSH’s ability to meet them provides opportunity to articulate value of SSH
There is no reason collaborative skills cannot be cultivated in SSH students as much as those associated with innovation and adaptability.
Addressing pandemics and biological threats requires coordinated research, development, and effort for the testing and implementation of treatments, vaccines, and diagnostic tools. The panelists were tasked with reflecting on a range of issues as a catalyst toward defining strategies and policies to build capacity to strengthen and sustain a deep, multi-generational pool of research talent.
What are employers implicit assumptions about the way individual skills contribute to innovation and intelligence in their organisations? Are social sciences and humanities disciplines attempts to articulate how these skills are fostered in their programs aligned with perceptions of needs?
In trying to make graduates more job-ready, universities will have to guard against inadvertently compromising some of their offerings.
