SI Toolbox

The SEED Toolbox uses existing tools and methodologies to provide an overall framework for supporting social innovation and building a pathway for its development. Starting from literature and the analysis of previous SI European projects, the aim is to implement a collaborative and inclusive process, combining methods and tools addressed to different end-users (both bottom-up and top-down actors/processes). The tools are divided into the different phases of the social innovation process: investigation, ideation, implementation and evaluation. Each stage, in turn, is made up of several sub-stages. The selected tools are intended to empower policymakers and social actors, who can use them either following the outlined framework or combining them depending on end users’ specific needs and goals.
