Study on "Social innovation: where we are in Italy" with FIS

Fondazione Etica has carried out a study on Social innovation” and “Impact investing” in Italy, for and with the Social Italy Foundation, of which she is a member.

The paper, through a selection of forty among the more than one hundred innovative projects analyzed throughout Italy, aims to stimulate reflection on the relationship between two increasingly recurring concepts in the debate on the third sector: social innovation and impact investing. Starting from concrete experiences, the document invites us to question what is meant in practice by social innovation and to what extent impact finance tools favor it. The focus is on actual practices rather than auspices or statements of principle.
