The issue of “social impact” is increasingly present in society and the economy, particularly in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship. Multinationals, startups, universities, etc., play a growing role in social change.
What about the interactions between the actors of innovation? What are the relations between “innovation ecosystems” and society? What are their contributions to social change? What is the consequence of the Covid-19 crisis? How can we analyze the links between innovation ecosystems and social impact?
