Emergence by Design (MD), to which Open Evidence is partner, is a project funded by the EC 7th Framework Programme aimed at supporting promoters for social change by developing a community around new theory, practices and tools.
The vision of Emergence by Design is to develop an international community around new theory, practices and tools able to construct a socially sustainable future. This international community, founded on existing social innovation groups, will collectively develop these new practices and tools on the basis of a shared theoretical understanding of how to drive and support social change.
One of the output of the project is to create a tool and a methodology for the evaluation of social innovation, called Dynamic Evaluation, aimed at providing “real time feedbacks” to innovation projects’ initiators and designers, as well as to all people and organisations that will be, directly and indirectly, affected by an innovation project about the transformations and changes that are occurring in the agents-artefacts space addressed by it.
To present the methodology, the Emergence by Design consortium is holding a webinar next Friday at 12:00 CET. In order to attend the webinar, please register here.
